The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, commemorates the creation of the world. It is typically observed for two days, beginning at sunset on September 15 and ending the evening of September 17; although some denominations will observe it only one day. This is a contemplative holiday for the Jews, with no work permitted and attending prayer services is encouraged. Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of the ten day span of introspection and repentance for the Jews, which ends with Yom Kippur.
We remember our Jewish brethren during this time as they begin their new year and prepare their hearts during these Days of Awe.
