Jewish religious leaders with the Chabad Jewish Center celebrated Rosh Hashana on Monday night at the Brand Park Japanese Tea Garden by casting off sins into the water. The High Holiday is commonly referred to as the Jewish New Year, marking a new cycle in the Hebrew calendar for people and legal contracts. The holiday, from sunset Friday to sunset Sunday, also marks the 10-day run-up to Yom Kippur, which is Sept. 27. Rosh Hashana is characterized by the blowing of the shofar, a trumpet made from a ram’s horn that’s intended to symbolically awaken listeners from their “slumbers” and alert them to coming judgment.
