Rosh Hashanah 5784 will begin Friday evening, September 15, 2023
and last until Saturday evening, September 16, 2023.

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, comprise the “High Holy Days” of the Jewish calendar.

Rosh Hashanah, which literally translates to “head of the year”, is a time for celebration and sweetness. We mark this joyous occasion with apples and honey (offering sweetness), round challah (to symbolize the cycle of life), friends and family, and worship services with the blowing of the shofar, all in preparation for a sweet new year!

We invite the entire community to observe Rosh Hashanah with Rockdale Temple. Services are available for children, families, and adults. Click here to learn more about the High Holy Days at Rockdale!
