Rosh Hashanah – Begins sunset of Wednesday, September 20, 2017 | Ends nightfall of Friday, September 22, 2017
The first of the Jewish High Holy Days that were listed in Leviticus, Rosh Hashanah, commonly called the Jewish New Year, is a time of celebration and season of reflection and solemnity. The blowing of the shofar is a central part of this holiday. It calls the Jewish people to turn to God or announces that something special is about to happen. Read Genesis 22, the story of Abraham and Isaac on this holiday.
