Happy New Year - Hallelujah

Wishing and hoping that all our Jewish friends and readers celebrated a #HappyRoshHaShanah Families around the world were enjoying the New Year with traditional ceremonies at synagogue and special meals shared with joyous celebrations.

Rosh Hashanah was celebrated on the 1st and 2nd days of the Hebrew month "Tishrei". Rosh Hashanah is the only Jewish holiday that lasts for two entire days, considered as one very long day.

The holiday of Rosh Hashanah is mentioned in the Torah, inside the book of Leviticus as Yom Teruah, which can be translated as the Feast of Trumpets, or the Day of the Sounding of the Shofar, a religious musical instrument that is blown like a trumpet.
