Rosh Hashannah

Rosh Hashannah - with apples, honey and blowing the shofar

Rosh Hashanah (literally, "Head of the Year") in Jewish tradition commemorates the creation of the world and marks the beginning of the Days of Awe, a 10-day period of introspection and repentance culminating in Yom Kippur - the Day of Atonement. 

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the two “High Holy Days”, with Rosh Hashannah often being celenrated by eating apples and honey (for a sweet year ahead) and the blowing of the Shofar (ram's horn).
