Rosh Hashanah for the year 2006starts on Saturday, September 23rd ending the 2 day celebration at sundown on Sunday, September 24th. For the Jewish calendar night begins before day, thus the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Friday, September 22nd.


Rosh Hashanah celebrates the Jewish New Year for Jewish Americans. Rosh Hashanah begins on the first day of the seventh month in the Jewish calendar. The Day of Remembrance or the Day of Blowing the Shofar are other names for this holiday. Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah are the two most important days of atonement that most practicing Jews will observe in the calendar year.

Why do Jewish holidays start at nighttime?

According to the Torah, the story of creation in Genesis says “And it was evening, and it was morning day one”, “And it was evening, and it was morning; the second day”, thus night comes before day. So for the Jewish calendar all days begin at nightfall and end the next day at nightfall including holidays.
