Jews will gather in their temples at sundown this evening to celebrate Rosh Hashannah, the beginning of the Jewish year 5778.

The joyous holiday also is known as the “day of blasting” or “Feast of the Trumpets.” The “blast” will come from a hollowed out ram’s horn that is blown at key times during services, which begin at sundown this evening.
