The Jewish year begins in the fall with the celebration of Rosh Hashanah on the first day of Tishri. Humanistic Jews recognize the fall festival of Rosh Hashanah as a time of new beginnings. We view it as an opportunity for self-judgment and affirmation that human beings have the power to change, improve, and seek their own happiness. Rosh Hashanah marks a turning point, a separation between the past and the coming year.
