Rosh Hashanah 2017 - 2018 Dates & Times”

For all the details on this year's dates, next year's Rosh Hashanah calendar, the meaning behind the holiday, food recipes and traditions, read on below.

Rabbi Mason, the Cazenove Road school's rabbi, spoke to students about Rosh Hashanah, a festival literally meaning "the head of the year" in Hebrew which starts today (Wednesday) and marks the first day of the 10 days of repentance.

Food and desserts were shared in hopes of a sweet new year to come.

This holiday, celebrated over two days, is a time for families and friends to gather to pray, exchange greetings and enjoy a meal together.

It's a night to celebrate for the Jewish community in the Quad Cities. However the basic essence of the Jewish new year is about prayer and pardon.

Yaakov Finkelstein, Consul General of Israel in Mumbai, said, "The Rosh Hashanah symbolises a new beginning".

It is traditionally marked by the blowing of a ceremonial ram's horn known as a shofar.
