22, the Rosh Hashana second day service will be at 10 a.m. Tickets are required for all participants, including children.

The two-day celebration is packed with special foods and traditions and is one of the most important dates in the Jewish calendar, but when does it start and end and how is it celebrated?

A festive get-together was held in Luzerne County to celebrate the start of the Jewish new year.

Fish heads are also eaten, to symbolise the head of the year, and pomegranates, which are said to have 613 seeds, similar to the 613 commandments in the Jewish holy teaching.

Observance of Jewish holidays begins at sundown on the eve of the holiday.

Rosh Hashanah - which in Hebrew translates to "head of the year" - is a time of inner renewal and divine atonement.

When does Rosh Hashanah start?

Services began this evening at Rodef Sholom with a congregational dinner at 6 p.m., followed by a service at 8 p.m. and reception at 9:30 p.m.

The province's Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour is wishing all Jewish Newfoundlanders and Labradorians a happy Rosh Hashanah. Shana Tovah U Metukah, (wish you and good and sweet year) is the traditional greeting exchanged amongst fellow Jews.
