Rosh Hashana for the year 2019 starts on Monday, September 30th ending the 2 day celebration at sundown on Tuesday, September 31. Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Sunday, September 29th.

Rosh Hashana celebrates the Jewish New Year for Jewish Americans. Rosh Hashana 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 Hashana are the two most important days of atonement that most practicing Jews will observe in the calendar year.

Monday, September 30th is day number 273 of the 2019 calendar year with 3 months, 12 days until the start of the 2 day celebration/ observance of Rosh Hashana 2019.
