In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a sacred occasion: you shall not work at your occupations. You shall observe it as a day when the shofar is sounded Numbers 29:1 (The Israel Bible™)
וּבַחֹדֶשׁ הַשְּׁבִיעִי בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ מִקְרָא־קֹדֶשׁ יִהְיֶה לָכֶם כָּל־מְלֶאכֶת עֲבֹדָה לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ יוֹם תְּרוּעָה יִהְיֶה לָכֶם Hear the verse in Hebrew
ba-KHO-desh ha-sh’-vee-EE b’-e-KHAD la-KHO-desh mik-ra KO-desh yih-YEH la-KHEM kol ma-le-KHET a-VO-dah lo ta-A-SU yom T’-RU-ah yih-YEH la-KHEM
The two days of Rosh Hashana (The Jewish New Year) mark the beginning of a period known as Aseret Yemei Teshuvah (Ten Days of Repentance) culminating with Yom Kippur. Rosh Hashana is a time of great joy and celebration as well as a time for prayer and repentance. There are many beautiful traditions associated with Rosh Hashana such as enjoying sweet foods as a symbol of the sweet year ahead and eating round challah bread symbolizing the circle of life.
