I Admire the Jews for Being Able to Call This Year Over and Start a New One

Seriously, this year needs to end.  [Well, except for the Cavs winning the championship.  That was great.  Where's my Cavs hat?]

Anyway, here's some information about Rosh Hashana, the celebration of a new year.  This was a holiday known by Jesus and his compadres as the "Feast of Trumpets" [Leviticus 23, Numbers 10 and 29].  As the celebration was originally centered on the Temple in Jerusalem, after the Temple's destruction the traditions described in the video came to be developed in homes and around dinner tables.  There's still a trumpet, though.
