Happy Rosh Hashanah The Jewish New Year Explained- Video

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is celebrated in 2013 from sundown on Sept. 4 to nightfall on Sept. 6. The Hebrew date for Rosh Hashanah is 1 Tishrei 5773.

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is not a time for lighthearted celebration, but for introspection, prayer, and repentance for past sins before both God and man. On this show Rabbi Eckstein discusses the biblical roots of Rosh Hashanah, and tells how Jews today follow God's commandment to observe this as a day for you to sound the trumpets, (Numbers 29:1), just as they did in biblical times.
