Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur
Rosh Hashanah (also known as the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur are two of Judaism’s holiest days. Rosh Hashanah falls between September and October and is a 10-day period of reflection and repentance. Yom Kippur comes ten days after Rosh Hashanah, celebrated with a purpose of bringing peace between individuals and God.
