Jews around the world are beginning to make preparations for the High Holy Days. The Jewish High Holy Days are observed during the period between the first day (Rosh Hashanah) and the tenth day (Yom Kippur) of Tishri, the seventh month of the Jewish calendar. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the most important of all Jewish holidays and the only holidays that are purely religious, as they are not related to any historical or natural event. This year they begin at sundown Sept. 29 and will end at sundown on Oct. 9.
