Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is a two day holiday celebrated on the First & Second of Tishrei Rosh Hashanah is characterized by the blowing of the shofar,a trumpet made from a ram's horn. The Yamim Noraim are preceded by the month of Elul, during which Jews are supposed to begin a self-examination and repentance, a process that culminates in the ten days of the Yamim Noraim known as beginning with Rosh Hashanah and ending with the holiday of Yom Kippur.The day before Rosh HaShanah is known as Erev Rosh Hashanah in Hebrew.

Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur, also known in English as the Day of Atonement, is the most solemn and important of the Jewish holidays. Jews have traditionally observed this holiday with a 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer. Yom Kippur is the climax of the Yamim Noraim , and with Rosh Hashanah forms the Jewish High Holy Days. Erev Yom Kippur is the day before the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur. It falls on the ninth day of the Hebrew month of Tishrei. The day is commemorated with a festive meal, giving of charity, and visiting others to seek or give forgiveness. By law, there are no radio or television broadcasts on Yom Kippur, airports are shut down, there is no public transportation, and all shops and businesses are closed.


Sukkot , is a Biblical pilgrimage festival that occurs in autumn on the 15th day of the month of Tishri. The holiday lasts 7 days. Outside the land of Israel, many people continue to sit in the Sukkah on the following day, Shemini Atzeret. In Judaism it is one of the three major holidays known collectively as the Shalosh Regalim (three pilgrim festivals), when historically the Jewish populace traveled to the Temple in Jerusalem. During this holiday, Jews are instructed to build a temporary structure in which to eat their meals, entertain guests, relax, and even sleep. On each of the seven days of Sukkot, the Talmud requires the Jew to take Four Species of plants and to grasp and shake them in a specific manner. These species are: the lulav, hadass, aravah and etrog.
