The Jewish New Year is also known as Rosh Hashanah in Hebrew.
The Jewish calendar months and holidays are based on the Lunar cycle. The Western, or Gregorian calendar is based on the Solar cycle. For this reason Jewish holidays fall on different dates of the Gregorian calendar every year, but always during September or October.
The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, is a time of renewal and blessings as we adorn our festive table with round challah bread and sweet honey.
