Happy New Year 5769 to my Jewish visitors (hi, Mike).
The Jewish festival of Rosh Hashanah – the name means “Head of the Year” – is observed for two days beginning on 1 Tishrei, the first day of the Jewish year. It is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, the first man and woman.
I understand that the festival actually began at dusk yesterday, and will carry through until tomorrow, October 1st (2 Tishrei). Happy holidays.
I also understand that Honey cake is one of the many traditional foods eaten during the High Holidays. Yum.
