Rosh Hashanah 2019
Sunday 29/9- Tuesday 1/10
Rosh Hashanah is not only considered as Jewish New Year, but also an occasion when God reviews and judges a person's deeds in the past year. It is also a time to look ahead with hope and to pray for personal growth and for reflection.
One of the most popular Rosh Hashanah customs involves eating apple slices dipped in honey, sometimes after saying a special prayer. Ancient Jews believed apples had healing properties, and the honey signifies the hope that the new year will be sweet.
