Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah, literally meaning “head [of] the year”, is the Jewish New Year. The biblical name for this holiday is Yom Teruah, literally “day of shouting or blasting”, and is also more commonly known in English as the Feast of Trumpets. It is a two-day celebration and marks the beginning of the civil year, according to the teachings of Judaism, and is the traditional anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, who were the first man and woman according to the Hebrew Bible.
