Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is both a joyous time and a period of serious religious reflection. One of the common customs of Rosh Hashanah is to eat apples dipped in honey and to wish others a “sweet” New Year. The preeminent symbol, however, is that of blowing the shofar — a “trumpet” generally made from the horn of a ram (because of its association to the binding of Isaac, the Torah portion read for Rosh Hashanah). The shofar also should be bent or curved in a shape to symbolize the bent and humbled spirit appropriate on Rosh Hashanah.
