Shana Tova - Happy New (Jewish) Year!

NEWS / 7 September 2023

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. It will be celebrated this coming weekend with sweet foods, like apples dipped in honey and honey cake, as a wish for a sweet year. Some families also celebrate with symbolic foods like the head of a fish, pomegranates, and carrots.. 

Rosh Hashanah



Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of the Yamim Noraim, the ten days of atonement. On Rosh Hashanah, all mankind is judged. HaShem (G-d) writes the judgement for each of us in the Book of Life. This judgement is based on our lives of the year before, and is the decision of what will happen to us in the coming year.
