Rosh Hashanah (Judaism)

From September 28, 2011 00:00 until September 30, 2011 23:59


Rosh Hashanah marks the start of a new year in the Hebrew calendar. Jews believe Rosh Hashanah represents the creation of the World (or Universe), although one view in the Talmud suggests Rosh Hashanah commemorates the creation of Man.

The two-day festival is a time to reflect on the mistakes of the preceding year, and to make plans of a better life for the coming year. Work is not permitted during Rosh Hashanah, with much of the first day spent at synagogue. The extended service held on that day includes the observance of the sounding of the shofar (ram's horn trumpet).

Duration: Sunset 28th September, 2011 - Nightfall 30th September, 2011
