Rosh Hashanah is a huge event on the Hebrew calendar. Occurring on the seventh month of the ecclesiastical year, it is the Jewish New Year, a two-day celebration occurring in early autumn and the first of the Jewish High Holy Days. It's the traditional anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, the first man and woman according to the Hebrew Bible, and the inauguration of humanity's role in God's world. Rosh Hashanah customs include sounding the shofar (a ram's horn), attending synagogue services and reciting special liturgy, as well as enjoying festive meals. Eating symbolic foods such as pomegranates (the many-seeded fruit signifies abundance) and apples dipped in honey are done in hopes of evoking a sweet new year. It is both a time of rejoicing and of serious introspection, a time to commemorate the completion of another year while also taking stock of one's life. And a chance to epically celebrate two New Year's, and related parties, in one year.
