DSU Scoop

  • Diversity Scholarship Fund
  • Rosh Hashana is the Jewish New Year.
    The creation of this Holy Day by the Lord is recorded in the book of Leviticus. Rosh Hashanah literally means “Head of the Year” and will be celebrated this year from the evening of September 6 through the evening of September 8. It is a day that the Jewish people believe that God scrutinizes their deeds of the previous year. It is a special time when Jewish people seek to repair their relationship with God and with the people in their lives where a relationship might be broken. It is a time to cast off sins and to seek and give forgiveness.
