Rosh Hashanah Young Families Service

 

Open-seating service for families with toddlers and preschoolers. A reception will follow in Isaac Mayer Wise Hall. Learn more about High Holy Days at Emanu-El.


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.
