What does the Jewish New Year mean to the Jewish people – on both a personal and a national level?

Is the Jewish New Year at all similar to the secular New Year? What is it all about?

Is it a solemn occasion or a happy one?

Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, marks the beginning of the High Holy Days. It is a two-day holiday followed 10 days later by Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

In this video, Rabbi Dov Lipman, a former Member of Knesset, explains what he believes were Israel’s main accomplishments over the past year and on which issue the country’s leadership should focus in the coming year.

Life-Saving ATVs Stop Terrorists Before they Attack Innocent Israelis

Palestinian attackers have terrorized Israelis with stabbings, shootings, bombings and car-rammings throughout Israel, with no end in sight.

Specialized, state-of-the-art, compact, all-terrain ATVs that maneuver in tight spaces are Israel’s “secret weapon,” designed to pursue and capture terrorists BEFORE they attack. Life-saving ATVs are desperately needed to protect communities throughout Israel. Please donate generously!
