Your Guide to Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur in Minneapolis
Rosh Hashanah, which translates as "head of the year", is the Jewish New Year. A time for inner renewal and divine atonement, this holiday falls days before Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year in Judaism and the official Day of Atonement. Just 10 days apart, Minneapolis has various resources and events available to those observing these holy holidays.
Each year Rosh Hashanah is observed on different days, with the 2019 Rosh Hashanah celebrations beginning at sundown on September 29th and ending at sundown on October 1st. Traditional practices include High Holy Day services, Tashlich services, and the customary consumption of a new fruit - a symbol of newness. Just ten days later, from sunrise on October 8th to sundown on October 9th, the Jewish community will also be celebrating Yom Kippur. Customs of Yom Kippur include fasting and traditional services such as the Kol Nidrei and Neila services. Resources in Minneapolis include Jewish centers, synagogues and other holy day events.
