Tonight begins Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. The year, beginning at sunset, will be 5774.
L’Shanah Tova! Happy New Year!
Rosh Hashanah begins a month filled with Jewish holidays, the High Holidays. Following Rosh Hashanah, we have Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret, and Simchat Torah. You can read more about each by searching the blog category of Jewish Holidays, as they have been written about in the past.
It is also the beginning of the “genealogical year”, as the annual IAJGS conference has recently ended, work really begins on the next conference (ours!), and we follow this month with the month of Cheshvan, designated as International Jewish Genealogy Month.
So this is wishing our UJGS members and friends, and their families, a happy and healthy new year.
