Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, falls on the Hebrew calendar dates of 1 and 2 Tishrei. The coinciding date on the Gregorian calendar is September 16, 2012 (at sundown).
As Jews in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and around the world, celebrate the first of the High Holy Days, we want to extend our warmest wishes for the New Year.
Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the spiritual calendar and the birth of the world. It serves as a reminder of the special relationship between G-d and his children, now and always. And it calls us to look within ourselves — to repent for our sins; recommit ourselves to prayer; and remember the blessings that come from helping those in need.
We wish all who celebrate Rosh Hashanah a sweet year full of health and prosperity. L’shana Tova Tikatevu — may you be inscribed and sealed in the Book of Life.
