Jewish people celebrate Rosh Hashanah or Jewish New Year for two consecutive days within the month of September or early October. It depends on the correlation between the Jewish ecclesiastical calendar and the Gregorian calendar in a particular year. Today I am sharing some quotes about this day.
Rosh Hashanah Quotes
“The key to understanding the themes of Rosh Hashanah is the date. The Day of Judgment for the world was not chosen arbitrarily, but is specifically on this date — not because it is the first day of the year, but because it is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve.”
Dr. Warren Goldstein
“May it be Your will, Lord our God and God of our ancestors, that you renew for us a good and sweet year”
“We meet today to thank Thee for the era done, and Thee for the opening one”
John Greenleaf Whittier
“For many Jews, Rosh Hashanah and teshuvah are annual reminders of the possibility to renew relationships with God and with each other.”
“On Rosh Hashanah, all human beings pass before Him as troops, as it is said, ‘the Lord looks down from heaven, He sees all mankind. From His dwelling place, He gazes on all the inhabitants of the earth, He who fashions the hearts of them all, who discerns all their doings.”
Rabbi Dr. Reuven Hammer
“It says in the Talmud that on Rosh Hashanah three books are opened before Him: the book of Tzadikkim, the book of Resha’im, and the book of Beinonim (intermediates).”
Reb Sholom Brodt
“Rosh Hashanah isn’t just about being new, it’s about a change.”
In the Rosh Hashanah often Jewish people greet one another with the Hebrew phrase, “shana tova” or “L Shana tova,” meaning “good year” or “for a good year.” They also may share in Rosh Hashanah many quotes on their social media. This is a very important day for them.
