Rosh Hashanah: L'shanah Tovah!

Rosh Hashanah, which translates to “first of the year,” is a two-day New Year festival that takes place at the beginning of Tishrei, the seventh month of the Jewish year. The holiday is celebrated on the first and the second days of Tishrei, which generally corresponds to September or October on the Gregorian calendar. So, l’shanah tovah to our beloved Jewish friends!

The Rosh Hashanah is both a time of rejoicing and of serious introspection and to celebrate the completion of another year! Rosh Hashanah begins the High Holy Days or Ten Days of Penitence, which end with Yom Kippur.

During this time, our Jewish comrades attend synagogue services and refrain from working. Instead, one of the popular practices, they eat apples and round challah dipped in honey, symbolizing the hope for a sweet year to come and the eternal cycle of life. Pomegranates are also eaten because the seeds are symbolic of the many commandments in the Torah that Jews must fulfill.

Another known ritual is to walk to a river or stream and recite special prayers of penitence. Then, one throws breadcrumbs in the river to symbolically cast away sins.

This is a great holiday to celebrate, and even refreshing to learn about for those who aren’t aware of the said festival!
