There are many traditional foods for Rosh Hashanah. They include apples and honey, carrots, dates, fish, pomegranate, beetroots and leeks.
Many people cook with these foods so traditional Rosh Hashanah foods include honey cake, apple cake and carrot kugel.
Some have the custom of eating a fish head (well at lest have one on the table) as Rosh HaShanah literally means head of the year

A girl being to menstruate does not affect the age in which she is obligated to fast. It is a custom for children to practice fasting prior to the age (girls-12, boys-13)in which they are obligated to fast.
It' Over Ven it's Over! Usually its an hour after sunset..Oy Vey Get with de proogrem!
Yom Kippur begins as soon as the sun goes down, entering into 10 Tishrei. Your local newspapers may print the times of sundown; otherwise local meteorological websites will have the information.
Yom Kippur is the Jewish Day of Atonement, where you fast for 25 hours. The holiday will sometimes fall during Shabbat.
However, Yom Kippur is the only time when fasting is allowed during Shabbat. Every other week out of the year, one of the requirements of observing Shabbat is to have three wonderful meals: Friday night dinner, Saturday lunch, and Saturday dinner.
If Yom Kippur happens to fall during Shabbat, it is kept no differently than it is if it were to fall any other day. It is spent by fasting and spending the day in prayer.
Egypt and Syria invaded Israel in 1973. They were additionally aided by Jordanian and Iraqi Expeditionary Forces.
Israel against Egypt, Syria, Iraq and more.
On Yom Kippur in 1973 Egyptian forces attacked the Bar-Lev line( set up by the Israeli army after the conquest of the Sinai peninsula by Israel in 1967). The Egyptians had initial success but were eventually pushed back by Israeli forces led by General Sharon. At the time of the UN mandated cease fire the Israeli army had crossed the Suez canal and were on the Eastern shore of the Suez canal.
As retaliation for US support of Israel, the Arab countries leveled an Oil Embargo on all Western Countries.
It was called the yom kippur war because the Arabs attacked on the Jewish Holiday called yom kippur
Fasting on Yom Kippur doesn't apply to anyone with health problems.
Some of the proper greetings are listed below. I encourage others to add to this list:
L'Shanah Tova - "to a good year"
Khatima Tova - "a good "sealing" [in the book of life]
Tzom Kal - "a light fast"
Yom Kippur or literally "Day of Covering" or "Day of Atonement" is a day for afflicting our souls. It is a day of repentance. A time for a self "audit" on our own lives, where we stand together as a community in introspection.
It is oberved with fasting and prayer.
1, Eat or drink (except in the case of children and anybody whose health might suffer as a result). 2. Wear leather shoes. 3. Wash. 4. Wear perfume or use lotions. 5. Engage in sexual relations.
Yom Kippur ends shortly after local sunset. This year (2009), it will be on Monday, September 28. The exact time after sunset varies according to the custom and practice of each synagogue or community, as allowed within the bounds of Jewish law. This is exactly the type of question for which a rabbi is consulted.
Actually, is's not - but it is nevertheless very, very important (it's definitely the second most important) as it's the day when observant Jews believe G-d takes a long, hard look at how they have behaved over the last year and what they have done during the ten days since Rosh Hashanah to put right any sins or wrongs committed. If a person has truly tried to make amends, they can consider themselves absolved with G-d. This is considered so important that there are many Jewish people who don't attend a synagogue on any other day but always make it for the Yom Kippur services.
The most important is Shabbat, which of course falls weekly, as it commemorates G-d's creation of the Universe and provides an escape from everyday labours and time to spend with that most important concept among Jewish people, the family.
well america israel and even in the uk people celabrate the jewish festivel 'YOM KIPPUR'
Yom Kippur (Leviticus ch.23) is the Jewish day of repentance, considered to be the holiest and most solemn day of the year. Its central theme is atonement and reconciliation. Eating, drinking, washing, cosmetics, wearing leather shoes, and conjugal relations are prohibited (Mishnah, Yoma 8:1). Fasting - total abstention from all food and drink - usually begins a half an hour before sundown (called "tosefet Yom Kippur," the "addition" of fasting a bit of the previous day is required by Jewish law), and ends during the following twilight.
A recurrent motif in the Yom Kippur liturgy is that of confession (vidui). The idea is that without soul-searching and verbal articulation of one's misdeeds, there can be no real personal improvement. An important feature of Yom Kippur is the belief that true repentance (regret for past misdeeds and a commitment to future improvement) is followed by God's forgiveness. Of course, in cases when another person has been harmed that person's forgiveness needs to be obtained first.
Contrary to popular belief, Yom Kippur is not a sad day.
Sephardic Jews (Jews of Spanish, Portuguese and North African descent) refer to this holiday as "the White Fast." Consequently, many Jews have the custom of wearing only white clothing on this day, to symbolize the "white": striving towards purity from sin, akin to angels.
Yom Kippur is considered the most holy of Jewish holidays and its observance is held even among the majority of secular Jews who may not strictly observe other holidays. Many secular Jews will fast and attend synagogue on Yom Kippur, and attendance on Yom Kippur can be double or triple the normal number of worshipers. In Israel, public non-observance (such as eating or driving a motor vehicle) is virtually unheard of. Yom Kippur there has the nickname "Festival of Bicycles," referring to children's practice of freely riding their bicycles in the streets without motor vehicles presenting danger. In Israel on Yom Kippur there is no broadcast television, no public transportation and the airports are closed. There is no commerce of any kind in the Jewish areas.
Only Jewish courts are closed on Yom Kippur.
