* Rosh Hashanah. Jewish New Year (5778). -2017.09.22 Yearly. Sunset to sunset.
"Head of the year" in Hebrew, this day commemorates the creation of the world. It is celebrated on Tishri 1 by the Hebrew calendar, which falls in early autumn. Rosh Hashanah begins the penitential season, culminating ten days later on Yom Kippur. The synagogue service includes the blowing of the Shofar (ram's horn), and liturgy stressing the sovereignty of God. It is customary on the first day, to go to a river or pond, and there to recite tashlich, scriptural verses about repentance and forgiveness. Introspect and resolve to do better.
