Shanah tova u'metuka!

Before World War I, Jewish rituals researcher Regina Lilientalowa wrote about Rosh Hashanah as follows:

Rosh Hashanah, or the "head of the year" (rosh means head, peak, beginning, shana - year), first of the Autumn holidays, falls on the first day of the seventh month called Tishri and lasts two days. Jews consider the holiday to be a memory of the conception of the world, but also - the Judgement Day (Yom HaDin) and the start of the civil year. All this is based on Talmud because neither as a New Year nor the Judgement Day does it appear in the Holy Bible, which calls it "a memorial of blowing of horns" and "day of blowing [the horn]."
