October 2 - October 4, 2016
Rosh Hashanah is observed on the first two days of Tishrei, which is
the first month of the civil and seventh month of the religious year on
the Jewish calendar.
Rosh Hashanah commonly celebrates the new year with a big family meal,
sweets and services
One of the most symbolic moments of Rosh
is the sounding of the shofar, a ram's
horn, which is the centerpiece of the holiday during prayer services.
Torah calls Rosh Hashanah
‘the day when the horn is sounded.’
A ceremony called Tashlich is observed during the first day of Rosh
Hashanah. During this ceremony believers symbolically
away their sins by tossing pieces of bread into a flowing body of water.
