Rosh Hashanah begins by blowing of the Shofar, an instrument made with a ram’s horn. It is believed one must wake up hearing the horn on each morning of the observance. People blow it up to 30 times during the morning Torah-reading. Women light the candles on each evening of Rosh Hashanah and recite blessings. On the second night, they use the flame from existing fire to light more candles while reciting the Shehechiyanu blessing. Share Jewish New Year Greetings L’shanah Tovah in Hebrew, Quotes, GIF Images, WhatsApp Stickers, Facebook Messages and Instagram Posts With Family & Friends.

People greet each other Rosh Hashanah, men tell each other, “Leshana tovah tikatev v’tichatem,” while, women say “Leshana tovah tikatevee v’tichatemee”.  The first phrase means “may you be inscribed and sealed for a good year”, and afterwards people wish others a “G’mar chatimah tovah”, which means “a good inscription and sealing [in the Book of Life]”. Following the traditional practices, believers toss a handful of breadcrumbs into flowing water to represent the casting off of their sins. A festive meal is prepared every night of the festival.
