Featured Holiday

Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew: the head of the year) is the beginning of the Jewish or Hebrew year that falls this year on Monday-Tuesday, September 10-11, 2018 - Tishrei 1-2 - א' וב' בתשרי, תשע”ט. The Jewish New Year starts the month of Tishrei and celebrates the beginning of the ten days of self-examination and repentance before Yom Kippur on Wednesday, September 19.

At the synagogue, the shofar (a trumpet made from a ram's horn) is blown. Traditional foods are challah, apples dipped in honey to symbolize the coming sweet year, fish heads to symbolize success (to be at the head and not at the tail) and pomegranates that symbolize fertility because of its many seeds. Greeting cards for the New Year (H: Shana Tova) are sent to friend and family.
