Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish new year. It begins at sundown and lasts two days.

It is celebrated by Jews all over the world. One of the most well known traditions of Rosh Hashana, is dipping the apple in the honey.

This is taught in schools at an early age that on the surface symbolizes us having a sweet new year. 

But like everything in Judaism their is more depth to it than that.

We also have a “seder” similar to Passover. This seder consists of different “Simanim” that we make a Yehi Ratzon over each.

We’ve created this handy download with all the simanim. 

You can download it here and have it ready for the holidays!

Each siman, brings its own meaning to a segula. We make this seder in order to bring bracha and merit for the new year!

Rosh Hashana is also a time for family. This time of year families get together to celebrate and bring joy and simcha together.

This year might be a bit different but nonetheless we hope that it will be a sweet new year.

From all of us at Hatzala Beit Shemesh, we wish you a happy sweet new year.
