  • Canada’s Jewish Community Celebrates Rosh Hashana

    Jews across Canada will be celebrating the holiday of Rosh Hashana September 4-6, 2013. Rosh Hashana literally means “head of the year” in the Hebrew language and it is a celebration of the creation of the world and the Jewish New Year of 5774. Rosh Hashana also marks the beginning of the ten-day High Holiday (High Holy Days) period which culminates on Yom Kippur (the “Day of Atonement”), the holiest day on the Jewish calendar.


    While Yom Kippur is a very solemn, introspective holiday, Rosh Hashana, by contrast, is quite festive. Jewish families in Toronto, Montreal and communities across Canada and around the globe will enjoy a large meal together, dip apples in honey to symbolize the wish that they will have a New Year that is sweet and filled with happiness, and many Jews will also attend special services held at synagogue. To Jews across Canada and around the world – Shana Tova (“Happy New Year”)! 


    Canada is one of the most multicultural countries in the world, with people from a variety of countries, ethnicities, cultures, languages and religions all living together in this diverse democracy. As a result of Canadian immigration, 20% of Canada’s 35 million people were born overseas (and many more have family living in other countries) and, yet, the country’s cosmopolitan population lives together in harmony and mutual respect. Immigration to Canada has benefitted this vast, scenic country in many ways, such as bringing an infusion of new ideas and innovation to business and academia, as well as exposing Canadians to various interesting cultures and providing them with access to a range of tasty ethnic foods.


    Canadian immigration not only enhances life in Canada, but it also gives foreign nationals many great opportunities. For example, people who immigrate to Canada enjoy many freedoms (such as freedom of religion) and they have guaranteed human rights that are protected by the Canadian government. Those who are issued a Permanent Resident Visa to Canada may also apply for good-paying Canadian jobs and world-class educational programs in one of the world’s most beautiful countries. Therefore, if you and your family want to experience the “sweet life,” Canada is the place to be! To learn more, visit here!
