Curious About Rosh Hashanah?

Rosh Hashanah is a Jewish holiday known as literally the Jewish New Year. The name translated means, “First of the Year” or “Head of the Year”. It is a two day celebration taking place on the first and second days of Tishri — the seventh month of the Jewish year.

The first day is celebrated as an anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve and their roles with God. Similarly to the New Years resolutions that take place in the United States, Rosh Hashanah is also a time of reflection for the Jewish people.
