Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew: ראש השנה, literally “head of the year”), is the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah is a two day celebration which begins on the first day of Tishrei, the first month of the Jewish calendar. It is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, and their first actions toward the realization of mankind’s role in G d’s world. Rosh Hashanah emphasizes the special relationship between G d and humanity. Each year on Rosh Hashanah, “all inhabitants of the world pass before G d like a flock of sheep,” and it is decreed in the heavenly court “who shall live, and who shall die . . . who shall be impoverished, and who shall be enriched; who shall fall and who shall rise.” Rosh Hashanah is the day we proclaim G d King of the Universe. The central observance of Rosh Hashanah is the sounding of the shofar, the ram’s horn, which also represents the trumpet blast of a people’s coronation of their king. The cry of the shofar is also a call to repentance, for Rosh Hashanah is also the anniversary of man’s first sin and his repentance thereof, and serves as the first of the “Ten Days of Repentance” which culminate in Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.
Rosh Hashanah customs include sounding the shofar and eating symbolic foods such as apples dipped in honey to symbolize our desire for a sweet year. The common greeting on Rosh Hashanah is “Shanah Tovah”, which, in Hebrew, means “Have a good year”. Rosh Hashanah occurs 163 days after the first day of Passover (Pesach). In terms of the Gregorian calendar, the earliest date on which Rosh Hashanah can fall is September 5, as happened in 1899 and will happen again this year, 2013. To learn more about Rosh Hashanah,
