Rosh HaShanah (literally, “Head of the Year”) is the Jewish New Year, a time of prayer and self-reflection. Jews review their actions during the past year, and look for ways to improve themselves, their communities, and their world in the year to come. The holiday marks the beginning of a 10-day period, known as the Yamim Nora-im (Hebrew for “Days of Awe”), ushered in by Rosh HaShanah and culminating with Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur, meaning “Day of Atonement,” refers to the annual Jewish observance of fasting, prayer, and repentance; it is considered the holiest day on the Jewish calendar.
