Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah Schedule

Rosh HaShanah, which translates to “head of the year,” marks the start of the Jewish New Year. It is, however, more than the first day of the calendar year. It is a time marked with celebration and reflection, reminding us to rejoice as a community and to do the soul work of introspection and self-examination.
