What is Rosh Hashanah?

The Jewish calendar is based on the cycle of the moon, which grows into a full moon and then disappears about every 30 days. The Jewish year does not begin on January 1, but rather in the fall with the transition from the “moon” month of Elul to the “moon” month of Tishrei (typically sometime in September).

Then Rosh Hashanah begins on the first of Tishrei when the small crescent of the new moon appears in the evening sky.

The Jewish new year is called Rosh Hashanah – Rosh is “head” and Hashanah is “the year.” In Hebrew, the word for “year” (shanah) comes from a root meaning “to change.”
