 Art & Lifestyle: The Jewish New Year – Rosh ha Shana

This year the Jews in the world celebrated Rosh ha Shana on the 14th of September, which means that hopefully all, have had a great celebration dinner on 13th evening after sundown.

New year started on that day and it was a celebration time for 10 days, ending with the Yom Kippur, the day of reconciliation. In the Jewish tradition this is the day of the creation of the world and its the birthday of Adam. So it is a joyful celebration, the time to think back about the actions and behavior in the past year and to justify before god.

This comes with a couple of symbolic things like blowing the Shofar, to open heaven, lighting candles, certain things to eat and throwing stones and breadcrumbs into the water as a symbol of striping off the sins, to start fresh and clean into the new year.

 

We eat honey cake, slices of apples dipped in honey, Zimmes (carrots cooked sweet) to have a sweet new year. Also its common to eat a piece of the head of fish or lamb to express the wish to become the head and not the tail. Not to forget the pomegranate which means the wish to multiply our rights like Pomegranates.

So its a very happy celebration with a lot of thoughts about the future and remembering of the lives of our ancestors.

Happy New Year –
