When is Rosh HaShanah?

Rosh HaShanah (ראש השנה) literally means "head of year." It is the celebration of the Jewish New Year, which takes place on the first day of the seventh month (Tishrei) of the Jewish Calendar.

It is a custom to blow on a trumpet (shofar) made from a ram's horn.

And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: Speak unto the children of Israel, saying: In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall be a solemn rest unto you, a memorial proclaimed with the blast of horns, a holy convocation. --Leviticus 23:24
