Friday, September 18, 2020: Rosh Hashanah Begins.
Rosh Hashanah 2019 begins at sundown on September 29. Literally “Head of the Year” in Hebrew, Rosh Hashanah is the beginning (first two days) of the Jewish New Year. It is the first of the High Holidays or “Days of Awe,” ending 10 days later with Yom Kippur.
This two-day festival marks the anniversary of human’s creation—and the special relationship between humans and God, the creator.
