Rosh Hashanah (literally, "Head of the Year") is the celebration of the Jewish New Year, observed on the first day of the Hebrew month of Tishrei. It marks the beginning of a 10-day period of prayer, self-examination and repentance, culminating on the fast day of Yom Kippur. Special customs observed on Rosh Hashanah include the sounding of the shofar, using round challah, and eating apples and honey (and other sweet foods) for a sweet new year.

Yom Kippur, the "Day of Atonement," is the annual Jewish observance of fasting, prayer, and repentance; considered to be the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. In three separate passages in the Torah, the Jewish people are told, "the tenth day of the seventh month is the Day of Atonement. It shall be a sacred occasion for you: You shall practice self-denial." (Leviticus 23:27). Fasting is seen as fulfilling this biblical commandment.
