Feast of Trumpets – Rosh HaShanah

Every day from September 30 to October 1

Rosh HaShanah (ראש השנה) is the Jewish New Year. It falls once a year during the month of Tishrei and occurs ten days before Yom Kippur. Together, Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur are known as the Yamim Nora’im, which means the “Days of Awe” in Hebrew. In English, they are often referred to as the High Holy Days.

The Meaning of Rosh HaShanah

In Hebrew, the literal meaning of Rosh HaShanah “Head of the Year.” It falls in the month of Tishrei—the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar. This is believed to be the month in which God created the world. The first months of the hear, Nissan, is believed to be the month in which the Jews were freed from slavery in Egypt. Hence, another way to think of Rosh HaShanah as the birthday of the world.
