High Holidays
The Hebrew month of Tishrei (which usually falls in September/October) features four important Jewish holidays: 1) Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year; 2) Yom Kippur, The Day of Atonement; 3) Sukkot, also known as the Feast of Tabernacles, which celebrates G-d’s presence in the world, and 4) Shemini Atzeret-Simchat Torah which marks the conclusion and beginning of the yearly Torah reading cycle.

Rosh Hashanah  Go
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is a festive holiday which commemorates the “birthday of the world.” It is customary to eat apples dipped in honey to emphasize our desire for a sweet new year. The holiday also marks the beginning of the Ten Days of Repentance leading up to Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. On Rosh Hashanah, a shofar—a ram’s horn—is sounded to help stir the soul and encourage people to repent for their sins and commit themselves to reconnect to G-d in the year ahead.
Sukkot  Go
Also known as the Feast of Tabernacles, Sukkot is an 8-day holiday that celebrates G-d’s presence in the world. As part of the holiday, Jews build temporary huts—sukkot—outdoors where they eat their holiday meals (some people even sleep in them). They also say special prayers over the “four species,” which are comprised of the lulav—a palm branch taken with several branches of myrtle and willow, and etrog—a citron.
