Rosh Hashanah Coloring Pages

Come to Rosh Hashanah coloring pages and collect the best images of the Jewish New Year holidays. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is one of Judaism’s holiest days. Meaning “head of the year” or “first of the year,” the festival begins on the first day of Tishrei, the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar, which falls during September or October.

Rosh Hashanah commemorates the creation of the world and marks the beginning of the Days of Awe, a 10-day period of introspection and repentance that culminates in the Yom Kippur holiday, also known as the Day of Atonement. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the two “High Holy Days” in the Jewish religion. The exact date of Rosh Hashanah varies yearly since it is based on the Hebrew Calendar, which begins on the first day of the seventh month. Rosh Hashanah is almost always in September or October.

The meal typically begins with the ceremonial lighting of two candles and features foods that represent positive wishes for the new year. Rosh Hashanah meals usually include an assortment of sweet treats. One of the most popular Rosh Hashanah customs involves eating apple slices dipped in honey, sometimes after saying a special prayer. On Shabbat (the Jewish Sabbath) and other holidays, Jews eat loaves of the traditional braided bread known as challah. On Rosh Hashanah, some Jews practice a custom known as Tashlich (“casting off”), in which they throw pieces of bread into a flowing body of water while reciting prayers. As the bread, which symbolizes the past year's sins, is swept away, those who embrace this tradition are spiritually cleansed and renewed. Jews greet each other on Rosh Hashanah with the Hebrew phrase “L’shana Tovah,” which translates to “for a good year.” This is a shortened version of the Rosh Hashanah salutation “L’shanah tovah tikatev v’taihatem” (“May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year”). Unlike modern New Year’s celebrations, which are often raucous parties, Rosh Hashanah is a subdued and contemplative holiday.
