It is also the day God created Adam and Eve.
It is a contemplative holiday and a time to simultaneously celebrate the world's divine creation and reflect on sin and God's judgment.
It is celebrated with the blowing of the Shofar - the ram's horn, festive foods with delicacies like apples dipped in honey, reading scripture.
I wish all my friends celebrating Rosh Hashanah,
Shanah Tova - Happy Sweet New Year!
