Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year celebrated in the fall. The two-day holiday is celebrated in a similar fashion to Shabbat, where people refrain from using electricity and spend time praying from a Machzor, rather than a Siddur in synagogue. Just like every Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashanah comes with its own set of customs. Most of the day is spent praying for a good year and repenting for sins done throughout the year as well as listening to the shofar, ram’s horn, being blown. There is also the famous custom of dipping apples into honey dish to represent a sweet new year.
