Rosh Hashana Fast Approaching

Rosh Hashana Fast Approaching

The Jewish New Year 5784, Rosh Hashana, is coming up quickly this Friday, September 15 on the Gregorian calendar, at sundown at 7:18 P.M. According to Jewish tradition, the first man Adam was created on the first day of the Jewish month of Tishrei, and, according to tradition, he was exiled from the Garden of Eden on the same day for disobeying God. Since then God has held court on humans every year on this day. The Creator makes decisions on this day about who is included in the Book of Life and who is not, and how the coming year will bring success for every person, so religious Jews spend the day praying for God’s favor and mercy.

The Vilnius Jewish Religious Community and the Lithuanian Jewish Community invite you to celebrate Rosh Hashana at the Choral Synagogue in Vilnius with us.
