Starting at sundown Wednesday, Jews in Charlotte will join their brethren from around the world in the celebration of Rosh Hashana – the Jewish New Year.
Also called the birthday of the world, the holiday will usher in year 5775 on the Jewish calendar and mark the start of the High Holy Days. These 10 Days of Awe – a period of repentance and introspection – will culminate on Oct. 4 with Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.
Synagogues in and around Charlotte will hold services, beginning Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Check their websites for times and locations:
