Yom Teruah

Yom Teruah Celebration

Feast and blow the Shofar and hear about all the symbolism of this very special Holy Day found in Leviticus 23 this year on September 6, 2021 at sundown.  Not only is it the commemoration of the creation of the world but it is also the prophetic day of Trumpeting that Messiah will come on in the future!

Please bring your Shofar and a potluck dish to share for dinner and we will have apples and honey available to usher in Rosh Hashana with a feast and fun fellowship!

Look forward to seeing you there!

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.  Watch this short video for a quick introduction to Rosh Hashanah.

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.
