Happy Rosh Hashanah 5773! L’shanah tovah!

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 16, 2012

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins at sundown tonight.  In his greeting for the New Year, posted two days ago, Prime Minister Netanyahu mentioned the tension in the Mideast and the rise of anti-Semitism.  He also discussed the contributions of Israel in the areas of technology, science, medicine, and agriculture that have helped not only Israel but the rest of the world.


IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz said in his Rosh Hashanah greeting that the New Year gives an opportunity to look back over the previous year and to look  forward to the year ahead.  He emphasized the strength and preparedness of the Jewish military.  “We are always ready, always on guard, always looking out for the security of the people of Israel.”

This year, Rosh Hashanah will be celebrated from sundown tonight until sundown on Tuesday.   It is the first of the High Holy Days, or Days of Awe, which end with Yom Kippur.  The latter holiday is celebrated this year from sundown on September 25 to the evening of September 26.

Instituted in Leviticus 23:24-25 as a one-day celebration, Rosh Hashanah is now observed for two days, as explained here.   It is celebrated on the anniversary of the sixth day of Creation, when God created Adam and Eve, marking the completion of Creation.  A description of common observances during Rosh Hashanah can be found here,  here,  and here .

Jews around the world will begin traditional celebrations this evening.  Some Christians join in this celebration also.  CBN will have its annual Rosh Hashanah celebration tonight at 7:30 PM EST.  The live broadcast will be available here.

On behalf of all our authors at SPIB, I want to wish all of our Jewish friends and readers and all others who celebrate Rosh Hashanah a happy, sweet, and prosperous New year.  Leshanah tovah tikateiv veteichateim.
