Happy New Year 5772!Shana Tova
To all those who will be celebrating the Jewish New Year, may you have a healthy, happy and peaceful New Year!
Rosh HaShana, which literally means "head of the year" starts tonight at 6:14 p.m. in Sharon MA. The two-day holiday ends on Friday at sundown, which means this year it continues right into the Sabbath!
One of the customs at Rosh HaShana is to eat apples dipped in honey to signify our wishes for a sweet New Year.
A traditional greeting at Rosh HaShana is to wish someone a "happy and a healthy" New Year. We say "Shana Tova" which means "good year" in Hebrew.
Wishing you a sweet, healthy and happy New Year!
