This Day of Judgment (also called Day of Memorial) marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year and the beginning of the Ten Days of Penitence (or Repentance), which end on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. The shofar, traditionally made of ram's horn, is blown 100 times on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah is a celebration of the creation of the world in the Jewish tradition.
