Four Names for Rosh Hashanah

Four Names for Rosh Hashanah

Tradition teaches us that the holiday that falls on the 1st day of Tishrei, traditionally known as the Jewish New Year, has four names that represent four different aspects of the day.  This lesson will explore those four names, their origins, and what the different names tell us about the meaning of the day.
