Also called, "Feast of Trumpets", celebrates the beginning of the Jewish civil calendar. Trumpets are sounded through the day and remind us that the time for repentance is short. For thirty days prior to Rosh Hashanah (during the month of Elul) we focus our attention on our sins, community wide. We seek forgiveness of our community partners and it is mandatory that we forgive those who come to us asking for forgiveness.
At Rosh Hashanah we look forward to the day that haMoshiach ( The Messiah) will come and reign on the throne in Israel. He will establish His government and take a wife. All in all, it is a great time of awe and celebration.
