There is, however, a radically different interpretation of this story. On this day, Jewish people observe the first of the High Holy Days. Another special food we eat on Rosh Hashanah is honey.
Rosh Hashanah is a special time, a time of change, time for new beginnings. It is the start of the Jewish new year and is a period of reflection on the past year; how can we pursue our dreams and goals in the coming year? To celebrate this renewing time of change we gather together with friends, family and loved ones not only to reflect but to celebrate the sweetness of life. If you’re hosting this year’s Roash Hashana dinner be prepared to make this most special of holidays truly memorable.
The CFDA greatly respects and understands the importance of this holiday but, given the international calendar of European shows directly after New York, we do not have the option to shift the dates later. We realize that the observance of the holiday will impact some in their ability to attend or present shows-but we are asking that everyone please work with us to make this situation work as best as possible.
According to the Mishna, there are two different forms of shofar used in the Temple. The first type, made of ibex horn and ornamented with a bell and gold, was sounded at Rosh Hashanah (New Year) and during the Jubilee (Yovel) Days. The other shofar was made of a ram’s horn ornamented with silver. This special shofar sounded on fast days. After the destruction of the Temple, the use of the shofar began to be exclusively used for religious ceremonies and events.

The shofar is unique in that it is a musical instrument typically created from the horn of a kosher male animal. According to Rabbi Moshe Gallante II’s Elef Hamagen, the horn preferences delineate with the curved ram horn, curved other sheep horn, curved other animal horn and straight ram’s horn being the order of most preferred to least. If non-kosher animal horns are used, there must be a special bracha or blessing. Still cow horns or antlered animal horns are not preferred.
