L'Shana Tova and Welcome
High Holy Days on
THE ROGUE JEW!
Celebrating the Jewish Holidays of
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur
October 04* - October 13, 2005
1 Tishri - 10 Tishri 5766
*begins sundown October 03
(Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown October 03,
Yom Kippur begins at sundown October 12)
The Jewish High Holy Days are observed during the 10 day period between the first day (Rosh Hashanah) and the 10th day (Yom Kippur) of Tishri, the seventh month of the Jewish calendar.
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the most important of all Jewish Holidays and the only holidays that are purely religious, as they are not related to any historical or natural event.
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is celebrated the first and second days of Tishri. It is a time of family gatherings, special meals and sweet tasting foods.
Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the most solemn day of the Jewish year and is observed on the tenth day of Tishri. It is a day of fasting, reflection and prayers.
To all of my friends during this holiday season..."May you be inscribed in the Book of Life"
THE ROGUE JEW
