L’Shanah Tovah! Reads for Rosh Hashanah

L’Shanah Tovah! Reads for Rosh Hashanah

September 18, 2020

Rosh Hashanah is a two-day celebration of the start of the Jewish New Year. It is also the start of what is known as the High Holidays, leading up to Yom Kippur—the Day of Atonement and the holiest day of the Jewish calendar. This year, Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Friday, September 18, and Yom Kippur falls on Sunday, September 27.

During Rosh Hashanah, there are special prayer services, and many look forward to the new year and what it might bring. Celebrations also often include eating sweet foods, like apples dipped in honey, to symbolize hopes for a sweet new year.
