Rosh Hashanah


Rosh Hashanah, literally meaning the "head [of] the year", is the Jewish New Year. The biblical name for this holiday is Yom Teruah, literally "day of shouting or blasting". It is the first of the Jewish High Holy Days specified by Leviticus 23:23–32 that occur in the early autumn of the Northern Hemisphere. Eating symbolic foods is now a tradition, such as apples dipped in honey, hoping to evoke a sweet new year.
