THE BASICS(just the most important facts)
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. The first two days of Tishrei. Then begins a ten-day period, which is the ten days of penance, and lasts until Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.
This year, Rosh Hashanah will begin on Friday night, September 15th, and will last until Sunday night, September 17th. We will be entering the year 5784. Most people go to synagogue on the first night, while some also go on the second night. During this time, people try to listen to the blowing of the Shofar, which is a wake-up call for our soul to begin reflecting on the past year.
In order to find out what opportunities will be available this year for those looking to celebrate the new year in synagogue, they will have to look on the internet as the specifics will only be made public a few days before the holiday.
