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 also known as The Day of Remembrance or The Day of Blowing the Shofar is observed on the first day of the seventh month according to the Hebrew calendar. Rosh Hashana is a two day celebration. This is a time of atonement for most practicing Jews, in which they will attend a synagogue.
