When is Rosh Hashanah 2023?

Ah, Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year!

Rosh Hashanah is observed on different dates every year because it follows the Hebrew calendar, which is based on lunar cycles. This year, Rosh Hashanah begins on the evening of September 15th, 2023 and ends on the evening of September 17th, 2023.


What is the tradition of Rosh Hashanah?

Well, It's like any other New Year celebration, except with a little extra kosher flair. Picture blowing shofars (those funky-looking horns), eating apples dipped in honey for a sweet year ahead, and feasting on delicious traditional dishes like challah bread and gefilte fish. Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the High Holy Days in Judaism and is a time for reflection, repentance, and starting fresh.

It's all about taking stock of the past year and setting intentions for the year to come. So if you see someone with a big smile on their face during this time, it's probably because they're excited for new beginnings...or maybe they just really love honey-dipped apples!

Don't forget to send some of our new Rosh Hashanah cards to your family and friends this year! Sweeten up your celebration with our festive clothing, puzzles, candles and more.
