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.
