Elul and Rosh Hashanah
View the Jewish calendar for this year: 5775
The month of Elul is the final month in the Jewish year. This month is a particularly propitious time for prayer, self introspection, and repentance. It is a time of intense spiritual preparation for the coming year and the upcoming holiday of Rosh Hashanah.
This year (2013/5774) the month of Elul begins on Wednesday August 6, 2013 and lasts through Wednesday September 5, 2013.
Rosh Hashanah is the first and second days of the first Jewish month of
Tishrei. It marks the beginning of the Jewish new year. The
celebration of this holiday is marked with solemnity, as it is the day on
which the whole world is judged for the coming year. Rosh Hashanah
is the birthday of the world, as it was on this day that G-d created Man
on the 6th day of creation. Every year, on this day, we proclaim G-d
as our one and true King.
This year, (2013-2014/5774) Rosh Hashanah, begins on Wednesday
evening, September 4, 2013, and continues through Friday night,
September 6, 2013.
