Rosh hashanah: "The New Year." The origin of this festival is given in Leviticus xxiii. 23—25: "And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first of the, month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work." And also in Numbers xxix. 1: "And in the seventh month, on the first of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you."
Though not one of the three great festivals, on each of which the male population of Israel was to appear before the Lord; it is, nevertheless, considered as one of the first among the principal holidays, has as such been celebrated by the Israelites since the giving of the law, and is known by the name of Rosh hashanah, or " new year."
