1- It means Head (Rosh) of the (Ha) Year (Shana)
2- The holiday starts at sundown on Friday 9-18-20, with a special meal that includes apples and honey to signify a sweet new year.
3- The traditional bread for Rosh Hashana is a round challah (instead of the long braided one) to signify that doing good deeds is never ending. It looks like a crown to signify that we are the king/queen of our universe and must use our power to make the world a just place for all.
4- This year, it’s 5781, the day the first human (Adam) were created.
5- Say ‘Happy New Year’ to your Jewish friends.
6- The date changes each year because it’s based on the lunar calendar.
7- There are 10 days between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, a time of self-reflection and becoming
a better version of ourselves.
8- The shofar (a rams horn) is sounded to demand our attention, and consider listening on a deeper level to our own voice and acting in a way that is truer to ourselves.
