rosh hashanah
Judaism has a whole bunch of holidays, most from the Bible going back thousands of years.

Rosh Hashanah, literally the head or beginning of the year, is one of the most important holidays, but there is a lot about it that is not well known.

Gidon Ariel teaches about some of the basics of this important holiday.

    Thanks for this important lesson. As a former art teacher I presented Marc Chagall’s work to my high school classes. One student who became a good friend loved to stay during lunch and watch a video about Marc Chagall’s work. She had converted to Jewish at age 10 and we had many interesting conversations until she made Aliyah last year! Loved the blowing of the Shofar! My young friend had one and nearly blew me out of the room! Learning new things about Rosh Hashanah has increased my understanding; this is exciting and seems like reaching across the ocean to Jerusalem itself! Shalom.

    How long did it take you to learn how to blow the shofar? How do you do that? I’m getting one for myself, but not in time to blow it for this Rosh Hashanah. God willing, next year.
