aroma, an offering made by fire to Yahweh.

The Jewish New Year brings in the month of "Tishret" which in Aramaic is,"to begin". It is celebrated as
the day of Judgment. Some people throw bread or stones into open waters symbolizing casting their sins off. This comes
from the word Tashlich which is the first day, meaning, "You will cast". Usually done on the first day of Yom Kippur.
In the weeks leading up to the holidays, they welcome each other with "SHANA TOVA" meaning, a Good year!
On Yom Kippur they often say, "Gmar Chatima Tova" meaning "may you be inscribed in the book of life" .
The Feast of Trumpets. It is the first of the High Holy Days or נוראיםימים
Yamim Nora'im ("Days of Awe") which usually occur in the early
autumn of the Northern Hemisphere. Rosh Hashanah (Feast of
Trumpets) is a two-day celebration, which begins on the first day of
Tishrei. The day is believed to be the anniversary of the creation of
Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, and their first actions
toward the realization of humanity's role in God's world.
Rosh Hashanah customs include sounding the shofar
(a hollowed ram's horn) and eating symbolic foods such as
apples dipped in honey to evoke a "sweet new year".
The term "Rosh Hashanah" does not appear in Torah. Leviticus 23:
24 refers to the festival of the first day of the seventh month as
"Zikhron Teru'ah" as "a memorial with the sounding of shofar"; it is
also referred to in the same part of Leviticus as shabbat shabbaton
or meditative rest day, and a "holy day to God". These same words
are commonly used in the Psalms to refer to the anointed days.
Numbers 29:1 calls the festival Yom Teru'ah,
"Day of blowing the horn".

Yom Kippur is the most sacred day in the Jewish calendar. It is a
25 hour practice of grasping the reality of our short lived lives. We
are not to engage in marital affairs, eating, drinking or enjoy any
conveniences of comfort. To everyone's mortality there is no sure
guarantee that we will have even one more day. Our fragile life is
taken serious as we comprehend our religious dogma's are less
significant in comparison to what is truly required by HIM who is.
