Rosh Ha-Shanah Begins

  • Menorah

Sunday, 29 September 2019

Jewish New Year. Today is a major day of celebration for Jewish people. The day is believed to be the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve. There are lots of prayers with lots of candles and a common greeting is: 'Leshana Tova Tekatev v'etachetem - May you be inscribed for a sweet and good year!

Meals to celebrate Rosh Hashanah will usually involve apples and honey - to signify a sweet new year.

In the classroom: Find out more about the Jewish religion. World Book Online has some great content. This will be a big day in Israel where the population is mostly Jewish. Use the World Books' compare countries' tool to compare Ireland and Israel.
