Rosh Hashanah, (literally "head of the year"), is the Jewish New Year. It is the first of the High Holidays or Yamim Noraim ("Days of Awe"), celebrated ten days before Yom Kippur. Rosh Hashanah is observed on the first two days of Tishrei, the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar. It is described in the Torah as יום תרועה (Yom Teru'ah, a day of sounding [the Shofar]).
The National Jewish Outreach Program was established by Rabbi Ephraim Z. Buchwald in 1987, to stem the losses of Jews from Jewish life due to assimilation and lack of Jewish knowledge. Since its founding, NJOP has become one of the largest and most successful Jewish outreach organizations in the world.
NJOP has created thi great video for Rosh Hashanah this year. This is a great message and such a fun way to share it!
