The Jewish New Year is celebrated from September 24 until September 26th and is known as Rosh Hashanah. Known as the Head of the Year, this special celebration is observed for two days. This time period is known as the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, which provides a connection between mankind and God.
Celebrating the New Year
The focus during this time is to reflect on this special relationship between God and mankind, including our own personal relationship with Him. Each year is a renewal of that relationship and connection.
The observance of Rosh Hashanah includes sounding the shofar, which is the ram’s horn used to announce the coronation of the king and it also calls for repentance from sin. This signals ten days of repentance that then ends with Yom Kippur, known as the Day of Atonement. The horn is blasted 100 times over the course of Rosh Hashanah services as a reminder.
Other parts of Rosh Hashanah include eating an apple dipped in honey and many special foods that symbolize the blessings of a New Year. Special prayers are also said along with candle lighting ceremonies.
