and all so close to the ever important Autumnal Equinox....... and also snagged it at the start of the Rosh Hashanah New Year!!!!!
Why is it called Rosh Hashanah? In Hebrew rosh has many meanings, including “head” or “first” or “start,” and shanahmeans “year,” with ha simply meaning “the.” In combination, the name of the holiday translates as “head of the year.”
When does it start and end? In 2017, Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown Wednesday, September 20, and ends with nightfall Friday, September 22. Technically, the holiday is September 21 and 22—the first and second days of the month Tishrei on the Jewish calendar—but in Judaism, the day begins at sundown the prior night. That’s why the Sabbath every week begins at sundown Friday and continues until nightfall Saturday. So Wednesday is Erev Rosh Hashanah, or Rosh Hashanah eve, and marks the beginning of the holiday.
