Today is the start of the Jewish holiday called Rosh Hashanah or the New Year. For those that may not know about the holiday I have included a small summary of the holiday for you to read.
Jews throughout the world began preparing Wednesday for the three-week-long Jewish holiday season, which kicks of at sundown with the Jewish New Year.
According to the Jewish calendar, Thursday is the first day of the year 5,771, the number of years God since created the world.
Many of the 5.77 million Jews in Israel, and another 8 million elsewhere in the world, will begin the New Year with traditional festive dinners, during which an apple is dipped into honey to symbolize the hope for a sweet year.
While Jews traditionally wish each other a “shana tova,” or good year, they do not light fireworks, count backwards to midnight, or engage in any of the other gestures which are a feature of the Western, secular new year celebrations.
The New Year, or Rosh Hashanah last for two days from sundown Wednesday to sundown Friday, and marks the beginning of a ten-day period of prayer, introspection and repentance, culminating in the fast day of Yom Kippur, or Day of Atonement – the holiest, most solemn day in the Jewish calendar.
So We at Ventriloquist Central wish a Happy Rosh Hashanah
