End Day Rosh Hashanah (Multi-Day Event)
Jewish High Holy Day: Rosh HaShanah (the Jewish New Year) begins at sundown the evening before, 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]

Since 2009, he has been a digital media reporter covering the Boston Celtics for Comcast SportsNet,, and SportsNet Central. Prior to that, the Syracuse, New York native was an NBA beat writer in Detroit where he covered the Pistons for Booth News Service and His professional career hasn't always been in the pros. Prior to working in Michigan, Blakely spent five years covering Duke, North Carolina State, and the ACC for the Raleigh, North Carolina News & Observer.
