Tomorrow is Erev Rosh Hashana or new year’s eve – the painting represents Genesis (Breshit “braysheet”) in Hebrew which means beginning

Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew for “beginning of the year”) is the Jewish spiritual New Year. The Mishnah, the core work of the Jewish oral law, sets this day aside as the new year for calculating calendar years and sabbatical and jubilee years. Rabbinic literature describes this day as a day of judgement. God is sometimes referred to as the “Ancient of Days.” Some descriptions depict God as sitting upon a throne, while books containing the deeds of all humanity are opened before Him. This holiday is part of the Yamim Noraim (Hebrew, “Days of Awe”); the Yamim Noraim are a ten day period which begins with Rosh Hashanah, followed by the days of repentance, and end with the holiday of Yom Kippur.

The traditional greeting on Rosh Hashanah is “Shana Tova” – Hebrew for “Happy New Year”.

This holiday is characterized by the blowing of the shofar, a trumpet made from a ram’s horn. During the afternoon of the first day occurs the practice of tashlikh, the symbolic casting away of sins by throwing either stones or bread crumbs into the waters. Rosh Hashanah meals often include apples and honey, to symbolize a “sweet new year”.

SHANA TOVA everyone


Every traveler sees what belongs to him on a journey – I hope you will see “what belongs to you” in my paintings and photographs
