The horn blew and I began to wake up. 

Rosh Hashanah is holy day's of renewal. It commemorates the creation of the world and marks the beginning of the Jewish year. Each year it begins with the new moon that falls in September (or sometimes October). During the month preceding, all the rabbis make clear, we must set aside time each day to engage in self-evaluation and a spiritual accounting.

The ten-day period between Rosh Hashanah and the next holy day, Yom Kippur, is considered to be a time of great importance in Judaism, when traditionally our fate for the new year hangs in judgment.

At Congregation Beth Sholom the evening service of the first night is very festive. Each of the following two days we meet for daytime services in the morning, including the traditional Torah readings and shofar service. At a quiet point in the afternoon, we walk to Mountain Lake Park. There we throw bread crumbs into the water, symbolically casting off our sins in an ancient ceremony known as Tashlich.
