Rosh Hashanah, a Hebrew term that means “head of the year,” celebrates the Jewish New Year. It is the first of the High Holidays, otherwise known as Days of Awe. Celebrated each year during the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar, 10 days before Yom Kippur. #RoshHashanah
This Jewish holiday is a two-day celebration of jubilation. Customs include sounding the shofar, which is a hollowed-out ram’s horn, as prescribed in the Torah. Eating sweet foods dipped in honey to invoke a sweet year, also may occur. Quite often people attend synagogue services on this day as weel.
In 2019, this Jewish Holiday will begin the evening of Sunday, September 29 and last until Tuesday, October 1.
