Jewish Holidays 2010 Starts with Rosh Hashanah 2010 – The Jewish calendar is entering Jewish Year 5771 which starts at sunset September 8 and ends nightfall September 10, 2010. The Jewish celebration known as Rosh Hashanah occurs 163 days after the first day of Passover.
With reference to the Gregorian calendar, the earliest day at which any Rosh Hashanah could fall is September 5 like in 1899 and again in 2013.
Rosh Hashanah is a Jewish Holiday which literally means “Head of the year,” or commonly referred to as the “Jewish New Year.” This Jewish Holiday 2010 is observed on the first day of Tishrei, the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar. Rosh Hashanah’s basis comes from the Torah as “Zicaron Terua” (“a memorial with the blowing of horns”), in Leviticus 23:24.
Rosh Hashanah 2010 will be the first of the High Holidays or Yamim Noraim (“Days of Awe”), or Asseret Yemei Teshuva (Ten Days of Repentance) which are days specifically set aside to focus on repentance that conclude with the holiday of Yom Kippur.
The celebration also has very religious meaning. According to Talmud, that of R. Eleazar, Rosh Hashanah commemorates the creation of man, which entails that five days earlier, the 25 of Elul, was the first day of creation of the Universe.
