The Jewish New Year's Day for Animals begins this year on the evening of Sunday August 8th (the first day of the month of Elul). Never heard of it? You may be familiar with the New Year's Day for all of creation (Rosh haShanah) and the New Year's Day for Trees (Tu biShvat). This program will introduce you to the New Year's Day for Animals — Rosh haShanah la-Behemah — its origin and rituals, and its revival in our own day as we prepare mentally and ethically to take responsibility for all of our relationships, beginning with those whose lives we impact with our life choices and who depend upon us for their well-being.
