Celebrating Rosh Hashanah

September 28-Rosh Hashanah – Happy New Year to all our host families, au pairs and friends.  Rosh Hashanah starts at sundown and is a solemn celebration of the beginning of the Jewish year.  Synagogue services are held on Rosh Hashanah. During the services, the shofar, a ram’s horn, is sounded.  During Rosh Hashanah special dishes are prepared. Many of the dishes contain honey which symbolizes the desire for a sweet year. The round-shaped bread served represents the fullness of the year.  If you would like some more information about this holiday please visit http://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/us/rosh-hashana.
