Rosh Hashanah, The Jewish New Year, is a celebration that blends joy with solemnity. On this day, God is praised for the creation of the world. During the service the distinct sound of the Shofar (ram’s horn) is heard in response to the Biblical commandment. As the prayers proceed, the uncertainty of life is considered, and prayers for reconciliation with God are offered.
