Happy New Year! Rosh Hashana begins at sundown


A blast of the shofar calls the people to Rosh Hashana


A traditional greeting for Rosh Hashana:

A good and sweet year to you,
may you be inscribed and sealed for a good year!

Our Jewish neighbors and friends will begin their celebration of Rosh Hashana at sundown today, Wednesday, September 24.  The celebration will conclude at sundown on Friday of this week.  (The 10 days starting with Rosh Hashana and ending with Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) are kept as the Days of Awe.)

For background on this celebration of the Jewish New Year, take a look at Judaism 101.
