May the New Year Bring Your Family Joy & Happiness
The traditional way to wish someone a Happy New Year in Hebrew is by saying ‘Shana Tova’. In Hebrew, this means ‘a good year’.
Rosh Hashanah – or to give it its Hebrew translation ‘the head of the year’ – is the Jewish New Year. Many mark the festival by attending their synagogue and spending time with family and friends. Although it’s a time for celebration, it’s also regarded as quite a solemn festival. People are encouraged to take the opportunity for personal reflection and ask forgiveness for their wrongdoings over the year just gone. May you and your family have a moment together to reflect and rejoice as a new year begins.
