Rosh Hashanah is one of the most important Jewish holidays and it is among the most widely celebrated. They are many Rosh Hashanah traditions, but if you just need a quick crash course, keep these things in mind:
Go to synagogue on Rosh Hashanah! Or at least find somewhere to hear the sound of the shofar. On Rosh Hashanah, it is tradition to hear 100 shofar blasts. These sounds are comprised of a combination of notes -- tekiah (one long blast), teruah (nine short blasts), shevarim (three blasts), and tekiah gedolah (a single and very long blast).
Eat a festive meal! Some people eat simanim (symbolic foods) on Rosh Hashanah. There is one symbolic food combination we all know about – apples and honey! At Judaica.com, we have a distinct collection of stunning honey dishes and jars that can help you bring that sticky tradition to your table in style. Other simanim include eating gourd (so our bad decrees should be torn), eating cabbage (so our enemies should be destroyed) and eating pomegranate (so we should have as many blessings as seeds).
Repent! Rosh Hashanah is the start of the Ten Days of Repentance, during which Jews ask forgiveness from their friends, family and God. It's serious stuff for such a celebratory day.
No matter how many of these Rosh Hashanah traditions you do, it is still the start of a New Year. So enjoy it! And buy something new for the New Year! Shana tova.
