L'Shana Tovah tikatevu (“may you be inscribed for a good year”)! Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins September 15, and ends September 17. An introspective holiday, Rosh Hashanah begins on the first day of Tishrei, the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar, which falls during September or October.
Meaning “head of the world,” or “first of the year,” Rosh Hashanah commemorates the creation of the world and marks the beginning of the Days of Awe, a 10-day period of introspection and repentance that culminates in the Yom Kippur holiday, also known as the Day of Atonement. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the two “High Holy Days” in the Jewish religion.
Let’s all wish the Jewish members of our community a “Happy New Year” this weekend!
