Ways to prepare for the Jewish High Holidays

Jewish High Holidays

The High Holidays are coming! Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is a time of celebration and Yom Kippur is, of course, the Day of Atonement. These are the High Holy Days, or the Days of Awe, that mark the dawning of fall each year. It’s a time to visit the synagogue and focus on repentance. Attending Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services and preparing to celebrate these holidays with your family is a great chance to experience connection to the community and to taste the spirituality of the season. Because so many Jews attend High Holiday services, most large synagogues require worshippers to purchase tickets for them. Some congregations have decided not to charge for tickets, because they want to be more accessible, but they still require reservations of some kind, and a few congregations treat the High Holidays like every other Jewish service and invite people to drop in. When preparing for your High Holiday services and events, Worldwide Ticketcraft offers a wide range of ticketing items to make sure that your Holy Days run as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.

Rosh Hashanah
Rosh Hashanah means literally “the head of the year.” As we approach the first of the Hebrew month of Tishri, we begin a month full of holidays. You may be thinking of preparations like baking challahs, slicing apples, or selecting your preferred jar of honey. The Rosh Hashanah New Year celebration is also a time for organizing and making sure that events go smoothly. Worldwide Ticketcraft has High Holiday Rosh Hashanah Event Tickets to ensure that your observance is organized and runs as smoothly as possible. Whether you’re in need of tickets for admission, either seated or general admission, or wristbands of children for babysitting services, we have the products you need to have a smooth and happy new year. You may also need parking passes or tickets. Worldwide Ticketcraft can take care of all your High Holiday needs so that you can focus on other aspects of the celebration.

Yom Kippur
The ten-day countdown from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur means a preparation for the Day of Atonement. As we prepare for a day of collective confession, fasting and prayer, it’s a good time to remember that Yom Kippur is a serious holiday but not a sad one. Fasting on Yom Kippur can function to help with the process of repentance, or provide a counter-irritant that distracts from how badly we feel about the sins we’re trying to overcome, setting a clean slate and a positive tone for the new year. With so much else to focus on for Yom Kippur, the last thing you want to worry about is the tickets for the High Holiday services at your synagogue.

However, Worldwide Ticketcraft offers a wide range of ticketing items to ensure that your Holy Days are well taken care of and distraction free.

7 Meaningful Ways to Ring in the New Year

NY img
2014 is on its way out—can you believe it? Like many people, as 2015 approaches you’re probably feeling ready to kiss 2014 goodbye. From resolution-setting to countdowns to midnight kisses, there are so many amazing and symbolic ways to ring in the new year. In addition to all the fun old standards, we’ve put together a list of 7 meaningful ways to welcome in the New Year.

  1. Make One Big Goal
    Instead of a writing out a laundry list of resolutions that is liable to be forgotten or abandoned by February, choose one major milestone, goal, or resolution that holds the most meaning for you—whether it’s getting your business off the ground, letting go of a big event from the past, or getting healthy—and commit to it. If you have more hopes and dreams for the new year you want to express, write them down, but don’t put the same weight of a resolution behind them. Focusing on a single goal allows you to take a big step you’ve always wanted to take in 2015 instead of a few tiny ones.
  1. Eat Collard Greens & Cornbread
    Some southerners traditionally cook up collard greens and cornbread to eat on New Year’s to invite financial abundance. Collard greens (or any greens) represent money, being green, and each bite is said to be worth $1000 in your pocket in the coming year. Corn bread is a soul food that represents pocket or spending money when eaten on New Year’s because its gold color represents gold or coin money.
  1. Photo Review
    Even if you only choose one photo from each month in 2014, taking a look at the past year in images is a great way to mentally “complete” the narrative of the last 12 months and find closure with 2014 so that you can start fresh in 2015. If you’re ambitious and so inclined, sketch out or find 12 images for each month of 2015 that represent changes or milestones you’d like to see happen.
  1. Running with Luggage
    Costa Ricans customarily ring in the new year by running across the street with luggage in their arms to invite new travels and adventures into their lives for the coming year. If you’re hoping to broaden your horizons in 2015, this is a great one to try!
  1. Meditate
    Still whirling from the 2014 holidays and unsure what you want 2015 to look like? Spend a few minutes around the stroke of midnight on Jan 1—or later in the morning as the sun rises—in silent contemplation. Even if you don’t get a clear image of what your goals should be in the coming year, you’ll give your subconscious mind time to review the past 12 months and plant some seedlings of ideas for how the next 12 might unfold bigger and better.
  1. Eat 12 Grapes for Each Month
    Spaniards ring in the new year by eating one grape for each of the 12 chimes of the clock at midnight while making a wish. The tradition dates back to 1865 and is said to bring good luck and fulfilled wishes.
  1. Clean
    While spring is typically the time of year that most people do a deep clean of their home (“spring cleaning”) because spring is symbolic of new life, the New Year’s represents the perfect time to do a major overhaul and cleanup. Deep cleaning your house and going through old clothes, belongings, the pantry, etc. is a great symbolic way to throw out the old and bring in the new. Besides, who doesn’t feel refreshed after a day or two of scrubbing and organizing? If you’re feeling really inspired, rearrange some furniture or refresh old curtains and furnishings, too.

Do you have a meaningful New Year’s Eve tradition that you celebrate? How do you wave good-bye to the old year and ring in the new one?
