Rosh Hashana: a day of sounding

Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew: ראש השנה), (literally "head of the year"), is the Jewish New Year. It is the first of the High Holidays or Yamim Noraim ("Days of Awe"), celebrated ten days before Yom Kippur. Rosh Hashanah is observed on the first two days of Tishrei, the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar. It is described in the Torah as יום תרועה (Yom Teru’ah, a day of sounding [the Shofar]).

We are now down to the last ten days to complete the Second Census.  We have sufficient unallocated coins for those who want to register but are short on funds to obtain their silver coin.  The Second Census will conclude on the Day of Atonement, September 14th.  This coincides with the “End the Famine” Prayer campaign, a forty day campaign.  For those in other countries who want to register and cannot send a coin or utilize the “Donate” function at the website, simply register and also click on the “Assistance” box:


We will take care of the rest.  It’s not too late to register.  If you are led to participate, now is the time. the Shofar is being sounded.
