Erev of Rosh Hashanah | JCC Open 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM
September 6, 2021
The Jewish High Holy Days fall during this program session. Rosh Hashanah (ROESH hah-SHUH-nuh or RUSH hah-SHUH-nuh) begins at sundown September 6th and continues through sundown September 8th, marking the start of
the Jewish New Year, 5779.
This opens a 10-day period of spiritual selfexamination
and repentance that closes with Yom Kippur (YOME ki-PORE). Called the Day of Atonement, it begins at sundown September 18th and goes through sundown September 19th. This is a day of prayer and complete and total fasting by those who keep the tradition.
