Rosh Hashana

"for a good year"
L'shanah tovah
. . . . . . . . . .

...In the seventh month, on the first of the month, there shall be a sabbath for you, a remembrance with shofar blasts, a holy convocation. -Leviticus 16:24
The shofar is a ram's horn which
is blown somewhat like a trumpet.



N
o
work is permitted on Rosh Hashanah and much of the day is spent in synagogue, where the regular daily liturgy is somewhat expanded. In Hebrew, Rosh Hashanah means, literally, "head of the year" or "first of the year." Rosh Hashanah is commonly known as the Jewish New Year.
. . . . . . . . . .

To all our Jewish friends,
"L'shanah tovah tikatev v'taihatem".
