Rosh Hashanah

The blowing of the Shofar signals the beginning of Rosh Hashanah—welcoming the Jewish New Year—a blast of the ram’s horn, calling the people to action, to remembrance and repentance!

And blessing one another with the words of a common greeting:
L’ Shanah Tova—“may you be inscribed and sealed for a good year!”
Rosh Hashanah! The day of remembrance written of in the Hebrew Bible in Leviticus 23:24: “. . .you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a holy convocation.”

In Jewish tradition, it is a time to seek forgiveness from others, a celebration of the creation of the world!
