Jewish New Year celebration to begin

The Jewish New Year’s celebration begins with Rosh Hashanah, starting at sundown, Wednesday, and closes with Yom Kippur, starting at sundown, Sept. 13. Rosh Hashanah begins a 10-day period which is a time of penitence and prayer that ends with Yom Kippur. Jews worldwide are given these 10 days to repent for their sinful acts and ask God for forgiveness.

Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the New Year, is celebrated the first and second days of the Jewish month of Tishri. It is a time of family and community gatherings, special meals and sweet foods. Traditional foods sweetened with honey and apples are served; these symbolize sweetness, blessings, abundance and the hope for a sweet year ahead.

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the most solemn day of the Jewish year and is on the 10th day of Tishri. It is a day of fasting, reflection and prayers.

It is believed that on Rosh Hashanah, the destiny of all mankind is recorded by God in the Book of Life. On Yom Kippur the Book is closed and sealed. Those who have repented for their sins are granted a good and happy New Year.
