High Holy Day Preparations

We have now arrived at the time in the Hebrew calendar that is called the High Holy Days. The three events of this period are Rosh HaShanah (New Year), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), and Succot (Feast of Tabernacles).

On Friday, a few hours before the start of Shabbat and Rosh HaShanah, I visited the Old City to see what I could see because two different religions had two major events coinciding: the Muslims were observing the last Friday of Ramadan (photos coming soon) while the Jews were preparing for the High Holy Days, which would begin later in the evening.

Here is a photo from the Jewish side:
