The Year Shofar: Celebrating Rosh Hashanah
How’s your year going shofar? The answer to that question may depend on which day you refer to as the true start of the “new year.” Could it be midnight on New Year’s Day, as the ball reaches its destination in Times Square? Or maybe it is the Chinese New Year, after being passed a red envelope with a bit of cash. Or, if you practice Judaism, Rosh Hashanah is likely what you perceive as the start of the year.
September 25th, Rosh Hashanah, is of great significance to the Jewish community. It is a day to take off of work and spend in the synagogue. The shofar, a ram’s horn, will be blown like a trumpet several times throughout the day. Apples will be dipped in honey to signify the hope for a sweet year. The common greeting shared between each other will be “l’shanah tovah,” which translates to “for a good year.”
With so many traditions, the Jewish New Year captures the essence of a true major holiday. And you know what every holiday needs? Greeting cards. Greeting cards for days.
