What does L’Shanah Tovah mean?
Unlike modern-day new year where the common greeting to wish someone new year is Happy New Year, but to wish someone Rosh Hashanah, we do not say “Happy Rosh Hashanah“. Instead of that, Jewish people use Rosh Hashanah Greeting in Hebrew which is “Shanah Tovah” or “L’Shanah Tovah”
When we translate Shanah Tovah from Hebrew, it’s rough translation is “Have a good year”. People also greet each other on Rosh Hashanah by saying Shanah Tovah Umetukah which means “have a Good and Sweet Year”.
Rosh Hashanah is celebrated on the first day of Tishrei and is a two-day celebration. According to the modern calendar, Rosh Hashanah is either celebrated in the month of September or October and Rosh Hashanah 2020 will be celebrated on Friday, September 18th and ends on Sunday, September 20th.
