      Rosh Hashanah translates to "head of the new year". The holiday celebrates the Jewish new year and is followed by a 10-day period of self-reflection of the past year and ends with the holiday Yom Kippur. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the two "High Holy Days" of the Jewish religion. 

      On Rosh Hashanah, people celebrate by eating apples and honey for a sweet new year and blowing a ram's horn, the shofar, to awaken listeners to self-reflection. On Yom Kippur, adults fast from sundown to sundown to ask for forgiveness for the past year's wrongdoings.

      This year, Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Sunday on September 29th and Yom Kippur is observed on October 9th.
