שנה טובה ומתוקה!!

The Jewish High Holy Days are observed during the 10 day period between the first day (Rosh Hashanah) and the 10th day (Yom Kippur) of Tishri, the seventh month of the Jewish calendar. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the most important of all Jewish Holidays and the only holidays that are purely religious, as they are not related to any historical or natural event. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is celebrated the first and second days of Tishri. It is a time of family gatherings, special meals and sweet tasting foods. Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the most solemn day of the Jewish year and is observed on the tenth day of Tishri. It is a day of fasting, reflection and prayers.
 Buenos Aires has a big Jewish community and Jewish visitors come to spend the time with relatives, friends or they´re on the way in a trip.Here We wanted to dedicate this page and meditate about Rosh-Hashaná and Yom Kippur two special events...

[במדבר כ"ט; א]

"בחודש השביעי באחד לחדש יהיה לכם שבתון זכרון תרועה מקרא קדש. והקרבתם אשה לה' "

[ויקרא כ"ג; כ"ד- כ"ה]


On the first day of the seventh month, you shall observe a sacred occasion: you shall not work at your occupations…. You shall observe it as a day when the horn is sounded. (Numbers 29:1).

In the seventh month on the first day of the month, you shall observe complete rest, a sacred occasion commemorated with loud blasts. You shall not work at your occupations; and you shall bring an offering by fire to the Lord (Leviticus 23:24-25).
