Eve of Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. In observance, the story of Abraham is read, a ram's horn is sounded, and special foods are prepared and shared. The holiday begins at sundown and marks the start of a period of introspection, abstinence, prayer, and penitence that ends on Yom Kippur. Some Jews observe one day away from work, others two.
