Rosh Hashanah – The Jewish New Year

The Bible commands the Israelites to sound the Shofar on the first day of the seventh month (Numbers 29). And indeed, Jews have been celebrating the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah on that day for thousands of years, a day alternately known as the Feast of Trumpets.

Looking Forward, Not Back.

The first month of the Jewish year is always an exciting one. Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year, catapults us right into a festive celebration of this year’s potential – we say special prayers, we blow the shofar, and we eat special foods that symbolize the blessings we hope to benefit from and bring with us into the new year.
