High Holidays

Rosh Hashana

Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. According to Jewish dates this holiday on the First & Second of Tishrei. On Rosh Hashanah, Jews all over the world gather in synagogues to celebrate the day God created Adam and Khavah (Eve), the first humans.We celebrate Rosh Hashanah with sweet foods, like apples dipped in honey and honey cake, as a wish for a sweet year. Some families also celebrate with symbolic foods like the head of a fish, pomegranates, and carrots. In Rosh Hashana God writes the judgment for each of us in the Book of Life.Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of the Yamim Noraim, the ten days of atonement.But the judgment is not final, the days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur give us a time to change the judgment for good, it is only on Yom Kippur that our judgment is made final.
