Rosh Hashanah celebration this year runs from sunset (Sunday, September 9) through to nightfall on Tuesday (September 11). It is celebrated by members of the religious community all over the world; consisting of elements such as prayer services in synagogues, blowing of a shofar and gatherings with community eating meant to symbolise the hope for a sweet and happy year ahead. It is considered a major date in the Jewish calendar, and the majority of Jewish people keep or mark it in some way, regardless of levels of religious observance the rest of the year.
