Jewish New Year falls on the 25th September 2014 this year. And what does it mean to the Jewish people?
Well Rosh Hashanah - Jewish New Year - is a time to remember the creation of the world and to reflect on one's priorities in life. A time to ask God's forgiveness and to think about how to live life over the forthcoming new year.
Observant Jews will attend synagogue in the morning and then return home to eat a special meal, which will probably include apples dipped in honey - symbolising the sweet new year that hopefully lies ahead.
Challah - the bread Jews eat on the Sabbath - is created in braided rounds for Jewish New Year to symbolise the never-ending circle of life.
Family and friends who have gathered together will wish one another "Shanah Tovah" - Hebrew for "A Happy New Year".
