L’shanah Tovah! Happy Rosh Hashanah to our fellow Jewish Latinos and our Jewish friends! On September 13, at sundown, the celebrations for the Jewish New Year, the first of the High Holy Days will begin. Rosh Hashanah is a two-day celebration, which begins on the first day of Tishrei, the first month of the civil year, and the seventh month of the ecclesiastical year in the Hebrew calendar. Tishrei usually occurs in September-October on the Gregorian calendar.
This day is believed to be the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, and their first actions toward the realization of humanity's role in God's world. Rosh Hashanah customs include sounding the shofar (a hollowed-out ram's horn) and eating symbolic foods such as apples dipped in honey to evoke a "sweet new year." To celebrate along with our Jewish friends, we’ve put together some greetings that would be perfect for your “Happy New Year” cards.
1) “Wishing you good health, happiness, peace and prosperity. Today and all through the year! L’shanah Tovah!”
2) “On Rosh Hashanah wishing you peace, happiness, good luck God’s blessing and success. L’shanah Tovah! Happy Rosh Hashanah!”
3) “At the New Year, with special thoughts of you, and a wish that the year ahead will be filled with peace, happiness, and good health.”
4) “On Rosh Hashanah it is written… On Yom Kippur it is sealed. May it be written and may it be sealed that you have a new year that brings fulfillment and happiness, peace and prosperity - all of life’s very best things. Have a Happy, Healthy New Year!”
5) “May this New Year be filled with health and happiness, and sweet moments for you and your family. L’shanah Tovah!”
6) “May this New Year be sweet, healthy and happy. L’shanah Tovah! Happy Rosh Hashanah!”

9) “When you look into your heart as the New Year starts, may you discover a new sense of possibility, a new belief in the gifts you have to share, and a renewed commitment to your faith and your dreams. Happy Rosh Hashanah!”
