Albany - The next 10 days are the holiest days on the Jewish calendar.

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, starts at sundown Friday. Members at Temple of B'nai Israel in Dougherty County are getting ready for two days of service.

During Rosh Hashanah, God opens the book of life, deciding this year's life plans, like who will live and who will have good luck. Rabbi Dana Evan Kaplan says, "We pray that God will renew us and give us another year of life. The book of judgment is sealed on Yom Kippur. These days are days of intense introspection and prayer. "

Yom Kippur is October 5th and 6th.

Services in Dougherty County go from eight to ten Friday and ten to noon Saturday.
