Happy New Year 5776

rosh-hashanah3It is Rosh HaShana, the Jewish new year, also known as the Feast of Trumpets. The shofar (ram’s horn) sounds 100 times in synagogue, summoning people to repent and rejoice.

At home, we dip our apples in honey, symbolizing a sweet new year. There are pomegranates and a sweet, round, braided challah bread.

Rosh HaShana ushers us into the ten Days of Awe, the High Holy Days. It is a time of new rosh-hashana2beginnings and the old being cast away. What could be better than that?

L’Shana Tova! Happy New Year, everyone!
