Rosh Hashanah (Judaism)
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

Rosh Hashanah marks the seventh month in the Jewish calendar and the beginning of the Jewish civil new year. It is also referred to as "the day of the sounding of the shofar," as a shofar, or ram's horn, is blown in the synagogue (the horn is not blown if Rosh Hashanah falls on the Sabbath). This day is reserved for prayer and penitence, commemorating the Creation of the world as written in the Bible. It marks the beginning of the ten Days of Awe, a time for introspection and repentance.
