What is Rosh HaShanah?

Rosh HaShanah is essentially the Jewish New Year, “Rosh” means beginning and “Shanah” means year. In the Jewish world, in this day families gather to have a traditional dinner (Seder) where they bless different foods with specific meanings. In Israel in particular, aside from the religious and family traditions, there are some of the best parties of the year!

Traditions of Rosh HaShanah

The traditions of mostly all Jewish Holidays may change a little depending on the origin of the family. Observant Jews usually go to the synagogue for special preyers, for more secular Jews, this is a resting day. In Rosh HaShanah the traditional dinner or Seder includes different foods that symbolize different things. Some people like to wear new clothes in honor of the new upcoming year.
