Jewish new year begins

Today is the first day of the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah began at sundown Wednesday.

Jews observe Rosh Hashanah, the beginning of the High Holy Days, as a time of reflection and prayer. There are 10 days of repentance leading up to the holiest day on the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement.
