On Rosh Hashanah, it is written... On Yom Kippur, it is sealed. All that you pray for, all that you dream of, all that makes you happy... that's what you're wished in the new year and always. Shanah Tovah Rosh Hashanah is the two-day celebration marking the Jewish New Year, which begins a ten-day period leading up to the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Another way to think about Rosh Hashanah is as the birthday of the world, for it commemorates the creation of Adam and Eve. Customs include the blowing of the shofar (a hollowed out ram's horn), calling for penitential prayers. Traditional foods are sweet, such as apples dipped in honey and Challah bread made sweeter and shaped in a circle, to symbolize completeness and to usher in a sweet new year.
