Rosh Hashanah is coming
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins today at sunset. Rosh Hashanah customs include sounding the shofar (a hollowed-out ram’s horn) and eating symbolic foods such as apples dipped in honey to evoke a “sweet new year”. Unlike the secular New Year’s Day celebration on January 1st, Rosh Hashanah is one of the holiest days on the Jewish calendar. This year Rosh Hashanah is celebrated from October 2nd through October 4th.
