163 - RESTING ON ROSH HASHANAH


Leviticus 23:24 -- “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.”

“New Year is likewise kept for one day; for it is a day of repentance, on which we are stirred up from our forgetfulness… The day is, as it were, a preparation for and introduction to the day of the Fast, as is obvious from the national tradition about the days between New Year and the Day of Atonement.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 43
