High Holy Days

Rabbi JEremy Storch

By Rabbi
Jeremy Storch

The fall season is considered the time of the high holy days for the Jewish community.  Three major holy days occur in the first 21 days of the biblical month of Tishri (Sept/Oct).  Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is observed on the first and second day of Tishri.  Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, falls on the tenth day of Tishri.  It is the most solemn day of the Jewish year.  Of all of the holidays and festivals celebrated in Judaism these are the only two holidays that are purely religious, they are not tied to historical or natural events.  The season ends with the eight days of Sukkot.

Rosh Hashanah

The Lord said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites: ‘On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts.  Do no regular work, but present an offering made to the Lord by fire”.  (Leviticus 23:23-25)

Rosh Hashanah is a time for personal introspection and prayer, a time of “putting your spiritual house in order”.
