This is a Jewish
themed coordinated web set I created based on the symbols associated
with Rosh Hashana. Rosh Hashanah, also called Yom Teru'ah
(the day of blowing), is the Jewish New Year, the symbolic anniversary
of the creation of the world. The words Rosh Hashanah literally mean
"Head of the Year." Festive meals are central to
the Rosh Hashanah holiday. A round challah, which
symbolizes completion, is used. The challah, as well as apple, is
dipped into honey to symbolize hope for a sweet new year.
Above you see a sample of how a web page title could be inserted into
the honeycomb background title image created for this set.
There is a blank

you don't have a graphic program capable of doing that, e-mail
me and I
will do it for you as time allows. Below you will find the
apple and honeycomb graphic divider and apple bullet designed for this
page. There is also a challah clipart email
button. Shofar coordinating navigation graphics
be placed at the bottom of each page if appropriate are also included.
used for sample title and on buttons is called: "Samurai"
||In addition to being the
anniversary of the past creation of the world, Jewish tradition sees
everyone as being created anew at this time every year.
Hashanah occurs on the first and second days of the Hebrew month of
Tishrei (which usually falls sometime in September or
October). The festival of Rosh Hashanah lasts for two days,
even in Israel where all other festivals are only one day.
essential mitzvah of Rosh Hashanah is to hear the sounding of the
shofar. The shofar is usually a ram's horn which is blown like a
trumpet. A total of 100 notes are sounded each day.
When Rosh Hashanah falls on the Sabbath, the shofar is not blown.
Rosh Hashanah, most of the day is spent praying in synagogue.
There are many unique prayers on Rosh Hashanah, so a special prayer
book called a machzor is used. The main theme of the Rosh
Hashanah liturgy is that G_d is King, and He rewards good.
