Jewish High Holy Days

Definition: The most important festivals of the Jewish religious year are celebrated during the first ten days of the month of Tishri, usually in September or October.

The first day is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

From Rosh Hashanah, until the last day, Yom Kippur, Jews think about how they have lived during the past year. They are asked to remember the wrongs they have done and to ask for forgiveness from God and those they have wronged.
