When is Rosh Hashanah in 2017?

Looking for when is Rosh Hashanah in 2017?

If yes, you have come to the right place. Rosh Hashanah in 2017 will start on Thursday, the 21st of September and will continue for 2 days until Friday, the 22nd of September.

Rosh Hashanah is a two-day celebration, which begins on the first day of Tishrei. Tishrei is the first month of the Jewish civil year, but the seventh month of the ecclesiastical year.

The Jewish New Year is called Rosh Hashanah. It is celebrated on the 1st and 2nd days of the Hebrew month “Tishrei”, and in fact begins on the 29th (and last) night of the month Elul. This is the only Jewish holiday which lasts for 2 entire days (considered as one very long day), and the reason for this is to emphasize its importance.
