Jews celebrate Rosh Hashanah

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – People of the Jewish faith are celebrating the start of a new year.

Wednesday is Rosh Hashanah, the first of the Jewish High Holy Days.

At Temple B'nai Israel in Albany, worshippers lit candles and blew the trumpet called a shofar. It's a time to look forward, but also a time to look back at the past year and repent for wrongdoings.
