Rosh Hashana
« on: September 30, 2008, 02:20:36 AM »
Hashana


Ynetnews Published:  03.16.08, 14:41 / Israel News 




Also known as the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashana is celebrated on the first and second day of the Jewish month of Tishrei, which is usually in mid-September or the beginning of October.

 


In Judaism, Rosh Hashana is considered the day in which God was enthroned over world and men, the day in which the world stands in judgment before God, and the first day of the High Holy Days `“ the 10 days of repentance leading to Yom Kippur.

 

According to tradition, Tishrei marks the beginning of the agricultural year, when all harvests came to an end and a new cycle of planting began.

 

The Torah orders Jews to sound the shofar on Rosh Hashana a custom tradition says was used to mark a new king ascending his throne.

Another interpolation of the customs says it is supposed to remind the Jewish people of the Binding of Isaacc (Genesis, 22) and of the receiving of the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai (Exodus, 19).

 

One of the main religious traditions customary at Rosh Hashana is the act of Tashlich, or "casting off". Held on the first day of the holiday, the custom calls for one to go to a natural waterway (such as a river, a lake or the sea), stand on its shores and symbolically cast off last year's sins `“ usually by throwing pieces of bread into the water.

 

Among the holiday's customs are several dishes carrying a special significance, such as an apple with honey `“ to symbolize the hope for a good, "sweet" new year; a pomegranate `“ to symbolize the hope for "as many privilege as its seeds"; and fish `“ particularly fish heads `“symbolizing the wish be "heads instead of tails", meaning to lead instead of trailing behind.
 
The traditional greeting during the holiday is "Shana tova (happy new year) and may you be written and sealed for a good year (in attaining to the pending judgment of Yom Kippur)".

The Sepharadim still use the Arabic, I believe - ra'su-s sanah (rosh hashanah) and sanah tayyiba (shana tova).

Jews are renouned plowers of the field and unlike the goyim, can grow crops in the fall and winter.

Leaving 'floaters' in the pond is the ancient Jewish secret for provide a super-nutrient irrigation source.

Just in time for the first frosts.

It probably all comes about through trying to make a lunar calendar fit a solar year.

Which is silly for Jews.  The goyim, particularly Celtic backgrounds, understand that these rituals all come from  lunar pagan traditions.

Notice our New  school Year starts in Sept

Actually, I think you may have got that from us. In Britain, schools had a long vacation between late June and early September so that they could help bring in the harvest. Of course, nowadays they just loaf about and get in everybody's way. Much better when they were cutting corn and not playing with x-boxes.

That is the going thought but some say the farm kids needed off at other times of the year.  I wonder when Congress' New Year starts?
Jews like to encrypt their religion on us disquising and linking it to something goyim so there will be no protests.  Yet they openly complain about any goyim holiday.

The Celtic New Year is Samhuinn, which is now 1st November (All Hallows Day), when all the crops have been got in and processed for the coming winter.

I think the Jews were trying to make their calendar march with the Christian one so that their festivals coincided with the major Christian ones (like Hanukkah and Christmas) for some reason.

The advantage with a lunar calendar is its precision. You can judge the beginning of the new month within minutes by watching with the naked eye the birth of the new crescent after the new moon (and with an optical device within seconds).

Perhaps we should start celebrating Bealltuinn (Beltane) again with burning wickermen on hill tops?  ;D

Of course now we are all praying in Sept and having Nation wide Memorials.

Quote
I'm Vickie Maidstone reporting from the Wings Of Hope sim (62,211,23), sight of one of a number of sims that will be hosting the 911 memorial services this week. It was in 2001, on September 11th, when the United States was attacked by terrorists from outside the US, boarded, hijacked, and ultimatly flew four passenger airline jets into the World Trade Center Towers in Mahattan NYC, The Pentagon in Washington D.C., and Somerset County in western Pennsylvania. Over 3,000 people died in those attacks and many were injured on the ground in those places.
Firefighters, first responders, police officers, many who gave the ultimate sacrafice of their lives in the line of duty have since then have never been forgotten and each year at Ground Zero in New York City, a service of remembrance is held there, Washington, in Somerset County in Pennslyvania.
This week will mark seven years and we have never nor will we ever forget, those who gave of them selves for others in the line of duty.
Now, here at Wings Of Hope, Thursday morning at 8a.m. SLT time, will mark the beginning of a 24 hour period of remembrance. Hope McAlpine of the Blue Angel Police Memorial Group in SL is the overall head of this and has been really busy. Services will be held every six (6) hours for 24 hours starting at 8 a.m. SLT time and ending on Friday morning the 12th. There will be speakers, readings, the list of names of those died, 21 gun salutes and members of the SL Bagpipe and Drum Corp. will also be in attendance.
There wil be notecards available in 15 langauges and attendance from around the world is expected to number quite high, many visitors from other allied countries will share in these services through representatives and heads of State as well.
In closing, we, the American people who through times of hardships, wars, famines and even in peace time, have never forgotten nor should we ever, the heroes of this great nation, whether in uniform to defend freedom around the world, or in our neighborhoods, We Will Never Forget

Notice the entire country is celebrating fall festivals, we Non-Jews actually think it is in honor of the farmers.  When have we ever honored our farmers?
