Rosh Hashanah

A Sweet New Year

of His Majesty

The Month of Elul is the final month in the Jewish year. This month is a particularly propitious time for prayer, self introspection, and repentance. It is a time of intense spiritual preparation for the coming year and the upcoming holiday of Rosh Hashanah.

Rosh Hashanah is celebrated on the first and second days of the first Jewish month of Tishrei, the beginning of the Jewish Year. This holiday is marked with solemnity, as it is the day on which the whole world is judged for the coming year. Rosh Hashanah is the birthday of the world – our Sages teach that the first Rosh Hashanah was the sixth day of Creation, when God Created man and woman. Every year, on this day, we proclaim G-d as our one and true King.

Meeting the King

Rosh Hashanah presents a special opportunity to celebrate with our King when He is close to us, and grow in our efforts to remain close to Him throughout the coming year.
