Beginning at sunset September 20, the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah ushers in the High Holidays and the Jewish New Year. Many local congregations have a full slate of activities planned between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, which begins at sunset September 29. Steve Mencher talked with Reb Irwin Keller of Ner Shalom in Cotati about the meaning of these holidays.
