What is Rosh Hashanah? What Does Shana Tova Mean?
In my article “Tips for Celebration Rosh Hashanah the Traditional Way with a Contemporary Twist,” I offer a more extensive synopsis of the holiday, its Biblical concepts and also its tie-in to Yom Kippur. In simpler terms, Rosh Hashanah marks the “beginning of the Jewish civil year.”
Shana Tova – or L’Shanah Tovah as well as Ktiva VeChatima Tova – is a customary greeting on this day that generally wishes another a “good year,” “sweet year” as well as the admonition and wish to be inscribed in “the Book of Life.” The symbolism of the traditional Rosh Hashanah Seder underscores this sentiment.
