Rosh Hashanah 2017
Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset on Wednesday, September 20 and ends on the evening of Friday, September 22.
What is Rosh Hashanah?
Rosh Hashanah, literally the “head of the year” is the Jewish New Year. It is a time of inner renewal and divine atonement.
What foods do we eat on Rosh Hashanah?
It is customary to have big feasts on both nights of Rosh Hashanah and there are thus a plethora of customary dishes, including: honey cake, brisket, tzimmes and more Rosh Hashanah recipes.
What are some Rosh Hashanah practices?
One of the common practices of Rosh Hashanah is attending the High Holy Day services, where the shofar can be heard.
Many people go to a Tashlich service where they throw bread crumbs into a naturally running body of water as a means of casting away their sins. On the second night of Rosh Hashanah it is customary to eat a new fruit, a symbol of newness.
