Let's celebrate Rosh Hashanah from on September 10th!  באוי לחגוג שנה חדשה

Rosh Hashanah
 (Hebrew: רֹאשׁ הַשָּׁנָה‬), literally meaning the "beginning (also head) of the year" is the Jewish New Year. The biblical name for this holiday is Yom Teruah (יוֹם תְּרוּעָה‬), literally "day of shouting or blasting". 

Rosh Hashanah is a two-day celebration which begins on the first day of Tishrei, which is the first month of the Jewish civil year but the seventh month of the ecclesiastical year. It marks the beginning of the year.

Rosh Hashanah customs include sounding the shofar (a hollowed-out ram's horn), as prescribed in the Torah, following the prescription of the Hebrew Bible to "raise a noise" on Yom Teruah. Its rabbinical customs include attending synagogue services and reciting special liturgy about teshuvat, as well as enjoying festive meals. Eating symbolic foods is now a tradition, such as apples dipped in honey, hoping to evoke a sweet new year.
