SCV to celebrate Rosh Hashanah

With the end of the summer months and the beginning of Autumn, the holiday season is right around the corner, and will begin with the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah.

Rosh Hashanah, which is typically celebrated with festive meals, candle lighting and prayer services, will begin this year at sundown on Sept. 29 and end at sundown on Oct. 1. Rosh Hashanah is analogous to celebrating the new year for the Jewish faith, according to Rabbi Chani Marozov of Chabad of SCV.

“It’s a time when we commemorate the creation of mankind through Adam and Eve,” Marozov said. “Rosh Hashanah translates to ‘head of the year’ and as the beginning of the Jewish calendar, it’s a time for us to make resolutions for the coming year and celebrate all the days to come. Just like a head control a body, we believe that what we do on Rosh Hashanah has an impact on the rest of the year.”

Here is a list of the services being offered by the different Jewish temples during Rosh Hashanah.
