Rosh Hashana Eve
Start Date: 9/9/2018 All Day
End Date: 9/9/2018

Event Description:
Jewish High Holy Day: Rosh HaShanah (the Jewish New Year) begins at sundown on the 1st day of the month of Tishrei, when the world was created. At synagogue, the shofar (ram’s horn) is blown 100 times both days, beginning the 10 day period from Rosh HaShanah to Yom Kippur, known as the Yamim Nora’im (Days of Awe). During this time, G-d decides who will live and die in the coming year, Jews reaffirm G-d as their creator and sustainer, repent for their sins of the previous year, make amends with those they have wronged, resolve to improve themselves, bless one another, pray for prosperity, and eat apples dipped in honey for a sweet year.[i]
