Rosh Hashanah

In case you are wondering why we're closed on a seemingly bright and sunny business day, break out your Jewish calendars (and shofars), because it's Rosh Hashanah time!

Rosh Hashanah represents the start of the Jewish new year. Like many holidays, it is observed as a day of rest (hence, the closing) and extends the length of ten days set aside for repentance. The culmination of the holiday falls on Yom Kippur.

One Rosh Hashanah tradition involves the blowing of the ram's horn, or shofar.

As the Hebrew saying goes, shana tova, and we'll see you on Sunday.
