Labor Day – September 6th
This major American holiday celebrates the American Labor Movement and honors those workers who mobilized, organized and made our country what it is today. Now, we use this day to celebrate those who work to continue to make our workforce strong and provide the necessary goods and services to you and your loved ones.
Rosh Hashanah – September 6th – 8th
Rosh Hashanah is the celebration of the Jewish New Year! It is a very special time and holds great significance for those of the Jewish faith. While Rosh Hashanah has many traditions, including ceremonial greetings, Tashlich, and eating apples dipped in honey, one of the most important traditions of Rosh Hashanah is the blowing and hearing of the shofar (the ram’s horn). We look forward to celebrating this holiday with our Jewish community members!!
