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.

Temple Emanu-El offers a number of service options:

  • Eve of Rosh Hashanah
  • Shir Chadash (A New Song) – A service featuring contemporary liturgy
  • A Pre-readers Service
  • Morning of Rosh Hashanah
  • Teen Worship Service
  • Family Worship Service

Traditionally, Israel’s Consul General in New York Dani Dayan has come to speak on the day of Rosh Hashanah. Following the Family Service, Emanu-El’s congregation observes Tashlich, a symbolic ritual of repentance.
