The Mitzvah on Rosh Hashanah is to hear the sounding of the shofar, the ram’s horn.

If you can only come to services for a short time - then try to be there for SHOFAR blowing.

Additional Rosh Hashanah observances include:

a) Eating a piece of apple dipped in honey, to symbolize our desire for a sweet year.

b) Blessing one another with the words "Leshanah tovah tikateiv veteichateim," "May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year."

c) Tashlich, a special prayer said near a body of water, in evocation of the verse, "And You shall cast their sins into the depths of the sea."
