How to Greet Your Jewish Friends on the Jewish Holidays

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Greetings

by Lisa Katz
for About.com
What are the correct ways for a non-Jewish person to respectfully convey warm wishes to Jewish friends on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur?

Rosh Hashanah is the first day of the Hebrew year. Thus, it is nice to wish your Jewish friends a happy new year. "Happy New Year" or the Hebrew equivalent "Shana Tova" are appropriate greetings. If you wish to elaborate, you can wish them good health, happiness, love, peace, prosperity ... and whatever else you would wish someone beginning a new year. If you want to give a gift, kosher chocolates, candies, baked goods or fruit make thoughtful Rosh Hashanah gifts because sweets symbolize hopes for a sweet new year.

Yom Kippur is the Jewish Day of Atonement. It is fitting to continue with the "Happy New Year" or "Shana Tova" greeting all the way through Yom Kippur as this whole period is considered the start of the new year. You could also wish your Jewish friends a "Good Signing" (in the Book of Life) or the Hebrew equivalent "Hatima Tova", but only more observant Jews will be familiar with this greeting. Given Yom Kippur is a fast day, you could also wish your Jewish friends an "Easy Fast" or the Hebrew equivalent "Tzom Kal." Gifts are not given for Yom Kippur.

For any Jewish holiday, feel free to greet your Jewish friends with "Happy Holiday", the Hebrew equivalent "Chag Samayach" or the Yiddish equivalent "Gut Yuntiff."

****************************
From Answers.com:

Rosh Hashana 2009 (5770 in the Jewish calendar) begins at sunset on Friday, September 18, and ends at nightfall on Saturday, September 20.
And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a holy convocation: You shall do no manner of work; it is a day of blowing the horn unto you. (Numbers 29:1)
In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall be a solemn rest unto you, a memorial proclaimed with the blast of horns, a holy convocation. (Leviticus 23:24)
When is Rosh Hashana? The paradox of the Jewish calendar
Rosh Hashana is celebrated on the first and second days of the month of Tishri (for the Reform movement, on the first day only). Given that Rosh Hashana is the Jewish New Year (the name literally means "head of the year"), it is perhaps odd to note that Tishri is not the first month of the Jewish calendar, but rather the seventh.
The explanation for this is that while Tishri is considered the month in which the world was created, Nisan — in the springtime — is the month in which the Jewish people became a nation (this is when the Exodus from Egypt took place; see Passover). Therefore, Nisan is month No. 1 specifically for the Jews; but the New Year, which applies to the entire world, starts in Tishri.
Rosh Hashana is always celebrated in the fall (in the northern hemisphere; Down Under, it's always in the spring) but the date ranges from September 6 to October 5. The reason for this is that the Jewish calendar is lunisolar, unlike the Gregorian calendar, which is exclusively solar.
What kind of New Year is Rosh Hashana?
Unlike New Year's Day in many cultures, the Jewish New Year is characterized more by prayer than merriment. Celebrants wear fine clothing and gather for festive meals; synagogue services are longer than those of an average Sabbath. A key feature of the liturgy is the yearly re-coronation of God as king of the world.
Rosh Hashana has two names in Jewish tradition: the Bible refers to it as Yom Terua (Day of Raising a Cry, or Day of Sounding the Ram's Horn) or Yom Zichron Terua (Day of Remembering the Terua), and later rabbinic texts call it Yom Hadin, Day of Judgment.
The ram's horn. The Bible mandates the blowing of a shofar, or ram's horn, on Rosh Hashana. There are numerous reasons suggested for this practice:

  • It recalls the biblical story of the Binding of Isaac , in which the patriarch Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son Isaac at God's command, but in the end sacrificed a ram instead.
  • It is reminiscent of the blowing of the ram's horn before the Israelite army went into battle.
  • Its sound arouses the lethargic soul from moral slumber and spurs a process of repentance.
  • It foreshadows the ram's horn that will be blown by the Messiah in the eschatological future.

The sounding of the ram's horn takes place at several points throughout synagogue services on Rosh Hashana, unless it falls on Shabbat, in which case the shofar is not blown at all.
Day of Judgment. According to the Talmud, each individual is judged on Rosh Hashana, as is the world as a whole. It is therefore a time characterized by personal and communal teshuva — repentance or return: looking back and evaluating one's thoughts, words and deeds during the previous year and resolving to improve them during the coming one, while praying for God's forgiveness and mercy.
The Rosh Hashana liturgy depicts God sitting upon his throne, inscribing each of his creatures in the Book of Life (or the opposite); each person's livelihood is determined for the coming year, as well. There is a threefold prescription to help in obtaining a favorable decree: teshuva (repentance), tefilla (prayer), and tzedaka (charity).
Rosh Hashana inaugurates a ten-day period called the Days of Awe culminating in Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement. These are days of heightened introspection, efforts at self-improvement, and pleas for forgiveness from those we have wronged. These days are especially relevant to those for whom the Day of Judgment did not produce a clearcut verdict (in effect, everyone, since no one is granted a peek at those divine scrolls).
Rosh Hashana customs
There are a number of ancient traditions that reflect the belief that Rosh Hashana is a foreshadower of the year to come as well as an opportunity for a fresh beginning:

  • Hatarat nedarim (lit., "untying the vows"). It is common, on the eve of Rosh Hashana, to gather a mini-court of three men and declare in their presence one's desire to be free of all personal vows undertaken during the previous year.
  • Foods. It is traditional to have honey on the table during the festive meals on Rosh Hashana and to dip the challah in it. The challah itself is usually round, instead of in the traditional braided form, to signify the end and beginning of the year forming a circle. Apple is dipped in honey and eaten after reciting "May God grant us a good and sweet year."
    Other traditional foods for Rosh Hashana meals include fish heads ("May we be as the head and not the tail") and pomegranates ("May we be as full of good deeds as a pomegranate is full of seeds").
  • Sleep. It is customary to avoid daytime sleep on Rosh Hashana, lest one have a sleepy year.
  • Tashlich . Inspired by the biblical passage "And you shall cast into the depths of the sea all their sins" (Micah 7:19), Jews gather near a source of running water and symbolically rid themselves of their misdeeds. The recital of a short prayer is sometimes accompanied by the tossing of breadcrumbs into the body of water.
Greetings. Traditional greetings before, during and after Rosh Hashana include: Shana tova (Have a good year) and Ketiva vachatima tova (May you be inscribed and sealed for good). It is also customary to exchange greeting cards.

Hi Peggy Jo,

Would you please share the good news to members of SS and SS&G in that I am one of only 10 artists in the entire U.S. and Canada to be invited by Japanese promoters to exhibit in the first Yokohama International Art Exhibit in Tokyo, Japan.  I will be leaving October 14 and returning November 8, and hope to visit Hiroshima while there.
I was also asked to demonstrate my painting techniques at the fair.  The promoters are shipping my work and paying for my flight, so it was kind of hard to say no.  The promoters saw my work at the Ann Arbor Street Fair last year, and we have been working out all the details. Approximately 40 paintings will be shipped.  I do speak some Japanese since I was in Kyoto a few years ago, but will have to brush up on it even though they are providing me with an interpreter during the show only.

Also, I did receive 2nd place in the Professional Fine Art Exhibit at the Michigan State Fair and one of my adult students,  Rhen Bryant, received 4th place in the Amateur Division along with 4 other students taking awards. They were elated.

Shirl Hathaway

Congratulations Shirley and Rhen. It's great news. Happy to share it with the PJSN readers.

Pink Rose Inspirational Foundation, Inc. The Pink Rose Inspirational Foundation, Inc. was founded by Nicholas Pyykkonen after he lost two aunts to breast cancer and watched his mother experience the effects of the same disease. His Aunt Kathy, an inspiration, lost her battle on April 21, 2005 and his mother was diagnosed on March 17, 2006. Two sisters, best friends in life, both outstanding teachers, daughters, wives, mothers and aunts. The youngest of three girls, Nick's mom has taken care of her entire family after they were diagnosed. Nick's grandfather lost his battle to prostate cancer and his grandmother, continues to fight metastasized colon cancer. Wanting to do something to stop this "beast" from invading the lives of other families, Nick launched the Pink Rose Inspirational Foundation in October, 2007 and Incorporated in July 2008.

The foundation is a non-profit organization and all donations are greatly appreciated. The Pink Rose Inspirational Foundation is focused on helping to find a cure for this cruel disease. Please feel free to contact us at anytime. We offer support to families in need and understand this journey.
