The Jewish New Year is the feast that marks the New Year’s Eve for Jews. In Hebrew she is known as Rosh Hashanah. This holiday is celebrated in the month of Tishrei, the first month of the Jewish calendar, coincides with the month of September in the Gregorian calendar.
The Jewish calendar is lunisolar, meaning it is based on both the sun’s and the moon’s movements relative to the earth. Unlike the counting of years that has the birth of Christ as its starting point, in Judaism the years are counted from God’s creation of man.
Unlike New Year’s Eve celebrations where fireworks and many parties take place, the Jewish New Year is a period used for meditation. On this date, the Jews become more reclusive, thinking about everything that happened this past year: achievements achieved or not, how they acted, how they could have acted, how they dealt with adverse situations, among other reflections. After evaluating their mistakes, they make plans to improve and redeem themselves from their sins.
Rosh Hashanah lasts two days, during which time Jews do not use anything involving technology or electricity, such as cell phones and computers. Working and driving are also prohibited. As is tradition, in the Jewish New Year friends and family exchange gifts. Want gift tips for this special date? So come on!
