Rosh Hashanah, also known as the Jewish New Year, is a significant holiday in the Jewish faith that marks the beginning of the High Holy Days. It is being celebrated between September 15-17 this year, and is a time for reflection, repentance, and renewal as Jews gather to pray, blow the shofar (a ram’s horn), and share festive meals with loved ones. During Rosh Hashanah, individuals seek forgiveness for their sins, express gratitude for the past year, and set intentions for personal growth and positive change in the year ahead. It is a solemn yet hopeful occasion, emphasizing introspection and the belief in the possibility of a fresh start as the Jewish community welcomes a new year.
Happy Rosh Hashanah to all those celebrating!
