Rosh Hashanah - Shabbat Congregation Meal
Rosh Hashanah signals the beginning of the autumn feasts and means ‘head of the year’ or New Year! The day is celebrated with the blowing of shofars or trumpets and is also known as Yom Teruah (the day of noise), calling us to focus on the return of the Messiah in the last days.

About the Event
Join us for a Shabbat meal to celebrate this event, where we blow the shofars and eat a good meal to remember God’s faithfulness and look forward to His return.
- The Jews celebrate this by sending new year cards and messages to each other like ‘L’ shanan tovah tikatevoo’, which means ‘may you be inscribed in the Book of Life for a good year’.
- It is traditional to eat apple slices dipped in honey. The apples represent provision and the honey represents sweetness for the coming year.
For the meal, this is a first-come, first-served basis to anyone who would like to join us. Please note we will be taking a voluntary offering during the evening meal, to cover catering costs.
