Shanah Tovah, JEW Coin Community!
Rosh Hashanah is one of the most important holidays for Jewish people around the world.
“Rosh Hashanah” means “the head of the year,” and the holiday marks the start of the Jewish New Year.
During this two-day celebration, your Jewish friends or coworkers are likely to take time away from work to attend synagogue, eat foods such as apples and honey or say prayers near water.
The celebration of the new year marks the beginning of the 10 “Days of Awe,” a time when Jews reflect and repent ahead of Yom Kippur.
This is the time of year during which we are to atone for both our individual — and on Yom Kippur, communal — sins committed over the course of the previous year, before God literally closes the books on us and inscribes our fates for the coming year.
Some of the most common celebrations for Jews include eating apples and honey, which is meant to usher in a sweet new year.
Pomegranate seeds are also eaten to represent the 613 mitzvot, or commandments, in the Torah, the Jewish holy book.
Some Jews may also recite prayers near a body of water during a Tashlich ceremony, in addition to tossing pieces of bread or other food into the water to symbolize “casting off” sins.
Synagogues will also blow a shofar, a curved ram’s horn, during Rosh Hashanah. Rabbis have also interpreted the loud blast of the shofar as a wake-up call for the new year.
