  • 7 Facts for the Jewish New Year

     

    With the Jewish New Year fast approaching this September 24th, we felt some fun and interesting facts about the holiday would help get you in the mood.

    The Jewish New Year is not celebrated quite like the Western world with alcohol and midnight parades. For the Jewish Religion, it is a time for introspection with the banishing of any mistakes made that year. Additionally, the planning for the New Year begins, considering any challenges that may await.

    So lets get started. The number 7 to Judaism signals creation, good fortune and blessing. The bible is replete with things grouped in sevens; for instance, on the seventh day there are seven laws of Noah and seven Patriarchs and Matriarchs. Also, many Jewish holidays are seven days long and priestly ordination also takes seven days and this is just to name a few. OK one more, the Menorah in the Temple has seven branches.

    With number 7 proving highly significant, we have put together 7 fun and intriguing facts about the Jewish New Year! We hope you can take something from them!
