Jews all over the world are getting ready to celebrate the new year–5773–Sept. 16-18. In Hebrew, Rosh Hashanah means, literally, "head of the year" or "first of the year." Rosh Hashanah is commonly known as the Jewish New Year, according to Judiasm 101.
September 25-26 marks Yom Kippur, also known as Day of Atonement, the holiest and most solemn day of the year for the Jews. According to Wikipedia, its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jews traditionally observe this holy day with a 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services. Yom Kippur completes the annual period known in Judaism as the High Holy Days.
