    Rosh Hashanah, known as the Jewish New Year, is a time for reflection and resolution. On Yom Kippur, also called the Day of Atonement, Jews fast, pray, and ask God’s forgiveness for their sins. Deborah Heiligman’s lively first-person text introduces readers to the sounding of the shofar, the holidays’ greeting cards, prayers, and special foods. Rabbi Shira Stern’s informative note puts the High Holy Days into wider historical and cultural context for parents and teachers.
