Rosh Hashanah, a Hebrew term that means "head of the year," celebrates the Jewish New Year.

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.
