About Rosh Hashanah &
the Jewish High Holy Days

Sept 12 : 06 days to Rosh Hashanah

Did you know that “May you be inscribed in the Book of Life,” is the typical greeting on Rosh Hashanah?

On the Jewish New Year, it is believed that G-d records the destiny of each human being in the Book of Life.

Rosh Hashanah begins a 10 day period, known as the High Holy Days or Yamim Nora’im, a time of penitence and prayer that ends with Yom Kippur. Jews worldwide are given these 10 days to repent for their sins and ask G-d for forgiveness.

We’ll be presenting a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Rosh Hashanah and the Jewish High Holy Days. Please join us!

Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Friday September 18, 2009.
