When is Rosh Hashanah 2015?
Rosh Hashanah 2015 begins at sunset on Sunday, September 13th and ends on the evening of Tuesday, September 15th.
Rosh Hashanah, literally the “head of the year” is the Jewish New Year. It is a time of inner renewal and divine atonement.
Many people go to a tashlikh service where they throw bread crumbs or lint into a naturally running body of water as a means of casting away their sins. On the second night of Rosh Hashanah it is customary to eat a new fruit, a symbol of newness.
Pronounced: roshe hah-SHAH-nah, also roshe ha-shah-NAH, Origin: Hebrew, the Jewish new year.
