As the end of the year approaches, our minds automatically start reflecting all the things we did the whole year. Some the deeds make us proud while we might regret some of the things we did. And there certainly are things we didn’t do that generally make us feel guilty. However, this is the part of a process which acts as a wake-up call and we set resolutions for the upcoming year.
Rosh Hashanah (“head of the year” in Hebrew) is the Jewish New Year. This day is said to be the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, and their first actions toward the realization of the mankind’s role in god’s world. This day is the first of the High Holy Days or Yamim Nora’im (“Days of Awe”) usually occurs in the early autumn of the northern Hemisphere.
Rosh Hashanah is a two-day celebration, which begins on the first day of Tishrei. According to Hebrew Calendar, Tishrei is the first month of the civil year and the seventh month of the ecclesiastical year.
