Services are held on the two days of Rosh Hashanah. During the service, a hollowed-out ram’s horn is blown. The horn is known as a shofar. Blowing it symbolizes a call to repentance.

During the Holy Days, members of the Jewish faith are asked to seek forgiveness from others whom they have wronged, to make amends and to resolve to act better going forward.

The High Holy Days end with Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur is the “Day of Repentance.”
