Customs of Rosh Hashanah  
1) The Simanim: Jewish Communities worldwide eat certain foods on Rosh Hashana as a symbolic prayer for blessings in the new year. This practice is based on the Talmud (Horiyot 12a) where the Hakhamim expound on the great meaning behind these auspicious foods. The foods eaten vary from community to community, but the foods are only a symbol that helps us to focus our prayers and our mindset for a positive outcome. As the food is eaten, a prayer is recited for each one, starting with the phrase "Ye'hi Ratson". It is for this reason that this symbolic seder is often called the "Ye'hi Ratsones" by Sepharadim.

2)Tashlikh- Tashlikh is a time to have a reflective moment with your self and God. Usually done by a body of water, we meditate on the God's kindness, and how we can be more worthy of it. To learn more about Tashlikh, please click  HERE

3) The 10 days of Awe- Many people increase their charitable giving during this time in order to increase their merits. It is a very auspicious time to increase one's observance of mitzvoth and to become a more sensitive and refined person. Other people take on stringencies they normally wouldn't hold during this time such as drinking and eating only dairy products that are Halav Yisrael (milk that was milked by an observant Jew) or only eating bread that is Pat Yisrael (bread that was baked by an observant Jew). The most important thing is to refine our character traits and to love and be respectful of others. 

5) Many people start to wish each other a happy new year from the start of Elul through Rosh Hashanah. Some of the traditional greetings are Shana Tova! (happy new year, Hebrew), ketivah v'hatimah tovah (May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year, Hebrew), Tizku LeShanim Rabboth (May you merit many years, Hebrew), Gut Yohr ( A good year, Yiddish), Buenos Anyos ( good years, Judeo-Spanish).
