Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew: ראש השנה‎) is the Jewish New Year. It is the first of the High Holidays or Yamim Noraim ("Days of Awe"), celebrated ten days before Yom Kippur.

Rosh Hashanah in "Shtetl Days"Edit

Rosh Hashanah was celebrated by the German re-enactors who played Jews in the tourist village of Wawolnice. While the dictates of their job required this, certain of the group, including Veit Harlan and his wife Kristi Söderbaum, observed the holiday with sincerity.
