Calling all kids who love Israel! It’s time to learn about the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashana! Watch here for a fun and educational video that will make Rosh Hashana come alive, with Hebrew lessons and a Shofar demonstration!
In the Torah, Rosh Hashana is called Yom Teruah (The Day of the Shofar blast), as well as Yom HaZikaron (The Day of Remembrance). It is a day of judgement and the sound of the shofar is meant to arouse our souls to repent. The holiday is marked with prayer, shofar blasts and festive meals, which often include symbolic foods such as pomegranates, whose many seeds are meant to symbolize the many good deeds we hope to have, as well as apples and honey, symbolizing the sweet year we pray for.
