Rosh Ha-sha-nah is the first of the 3 fall Jewish feasts (Lev 23:24) It’s a 2 day celebration which began at sunset Monday, September 6
Rosh Hashanah means literally “head of the year” in Hebrew. It marks the beginning of a 10-day period of prayer, self-examination, and repentance ending with Yom Kippur, which is known as the Day of Atonement.
The year begins at sundown because the ancient Jewish calendar is based on phases of the moon
Also called the FEAST OF TRUMPETS because it starts with the blowing of a shofar to announce the begining of the Jewish New Year.
To symbolize a prosperous new year, It is a time of feasting and rejoicing..lots of traditional holiday food and sweets!
