BEACHWOOD, Ohio — Rosh Hashanah, the celebration of the Jewish New Year, began at sundown on Monday.
The two-day celebration commemorates the beginning of the Jewish High Holy Days each autumn.
Rosh Hashanah begins customarily with the blowing of the shofar, the ram’s horn, a sound meant to wake up people from their slumber.
Rosh Hashanah begins the “Days of Awe,” a 10-day period culminating in Yom Kippur.
Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple in Beachwood streamed the service online Monday to give everyone a chance to view the celebration from home during the pandemic.
