It is a time for cleansing and renewal, a chance to receive forgiveness and clear the slate.
The importance of the holiday is reflected in its two-day observance; most Jewish holidays are celebrated for only one day. Rosh Hashanah, literally translated as “head of the year,” is considered the Jewish New Year.
Rosh Hashanah is many things, but most people know it as the Jewish New Year. In fact, the significance of Rosh Hashanah encapsulates four major and interconnected themes. The holiday is:
- The Jewish New Year
- The Day of Judgement
- The Day of Remembrance
- The Day of Shofar Blowing
Rosh Hashanah is one of two High Holidays in the Jewish religion, the other being Yom Kippur, which occurs 10 days after Rosh Hashanah begins.
These two holidays form the High Holiday period, arguably the most significant time in the Jewish year, as it marks the chance for repentance and forgiveness in the eyes of God.
During the High Holidays, Jews cleanse their soul and get the chance to start fresh with an unburdened conscience and the intention of doing better in the coming year.
