Rosh Hashanah


This Sunday evening is the beginning of Jewish New Year, known as Rosh Hashanah in Hebrew which literally means ‘Head of the Year’.

It is one of the holiest days for Jewish people around the world and marks the beginning of the Jewish High Holy Days.

Over this two-day celebration, people of the Jewish faith attend synagogue services, enjoy festive meals, and observe customs such as the sounding of the ‘shofar’ (a ram’s horn). It is customary to eat apple dipped in honey to welcome a sweet new year.

For all those celebrating, Shana Tova, and may it be a good and sweet year.
