Rosh Hashanah begins the evening of Sunday, September 25th and ends the evening of Tuesday, September 27th. 

Rosh HaShanah is the Jewish New Year. The biblical name for this holiday is Yom Teruah, literally "day of shouting or blasting." It is the first of the Jewish High Holy Days, as specified by Leviticus 23:23–25, that occur in the late summer/early autumn of the Northern Hemisphere. 

Happy Rosh Hashanah!

 

Yom Kippur begins Tuesday, October 4th and ends Wednesday, October 5th. 

Yom Kippur—the Day of Atonement—is considered the most important holiday in the Jewish faith. Falling in the month of Tishrei (September or October in the Gregorian calendar), it marks the culmination of the 10 Days of Awe, a period of introspection and repentance that follows Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.
