The biblical name for this holiday is Yom Teruah, which means the day of shouting or blasting. Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of the Jewish High Holy days. These days always start in the autumn months and it's a very special time of year for Jewish people.

Families celebrate by lighting candles at home and eating a traditional Rosh Hashanah meal, which usually includes apples and honey. Sweet foods are eaten throughout the meal to welcome the sweetness of the year ahead.
