Haven Plaza, Haven Avenue between Fort Washington Avenue and 169th Street
Please join us on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 from 11:00 – 2:00 pm at Haven Plaza (168th Street & Fort Washington Avenue) as we celebrate Rosh Hashanah.
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is one of Judaism’s holiest days. Meaning “head of the year” or “first of the year”. Rosh Hashanah commemorates the creation of the world and marks the beginning of the Days of Awe, a 10-day period of introspection and repentance that culminates with Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the two “High Holy Days”.
Rosh Hashanah 2021 begins at sundown on Monday, September 6, 2021 and ends on the evening of Wednesday, September 8, 2021.
Apples and honey symbolize the sweetness of the New Year.
*Honey will be supplied from a vendor at CUIMC’s Farmer’s Market
