Rosh Hashana (Start) in
Days to go:
Rosh Hashana (Hebrew: ראש השנה) signifies the beginning of the Jewish New Year and lasts for two days. During this time, Jewish people gather in synagogues and pray, celebrate with family and friends, and participate in various traditional customs such as eating symbolic foods. Some of the important aspects of the observance of Rosh Hashana include the blowing of the shofar, reciting special prayers, and reflecting on the past year.
The history of Rosh Hashana can be traced back to biblical times when the Jewish people observed it as a day of judgment. It was believed that on this day, God would judge all of humanity and determine who would be inscribed in the Book of Life for the upcoming year. In America, Rosh Hashana is observed in much the same way as it is in other parts of the world. Many Jewish people attend synagogue services, participate in traditional rituals such as Tashlich (symbolically casting away sins), and enjoy festive meals with family and friends.
Rosh Hashana usually falls in September or October and is observed according to the Jewish calendar. It is a time for Jewish people to come together and celebrate the beginning of a new year with hope and optimism. Rosh Hashana takes place on September 15th this year.
