Jewish People Now Celebrating Holiday Season

Wednesday night was an important evening for the Jewish faith. It's Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year. The holiday began at sundown.  Rosh Hashanah occurs 163 days after the first day of Passover. This is actually the first of 3 holidays that all come together.

Rabbi Scott Kramer  of Aguath Isoreal Etz Ahayem tells WSFA 12 news, "Ten days after Tosh Hashanah is our day of repentance. It is called Yom Kippur and that is followed 4 days after that with an 8 day holiday called Sukkot which is a very joyous time of year."

Rabbi Kramer is new to Montgomery. He recently moved here from Los Angeles.
