When does the Jewish New Year begin? According to tradition, it is when the commandments of Mitzvos ( commandments which are to be kept) are fulfilled. However, Jews all over the world observe different calendars beginning with the decree of Mitzvot, the last day of Passover. For some, it is when the collection of Jewish books is completed; for others, it is Shavuot, the beginning of Shavuot.
Some communities also observe that the first two days of the Jewish New Year, as well as the first two days of Shavuot, are considered the High Holidays. These are also days when family and friends gather together to celebrate the miracle of giving birth to a baby boy or girl. These days, women wear special dresses and gather together for special meals. The baby is not considered to be a baby anymore, but just a child; and in some communities, the community celebrates the miracle of welcoming the baby by feasting on its meat.
The Jewish New Year comprises two major holidays: Shavuot and Nisan. The first two days of Shavuot are considered to be the “Spouse’s Day” because Shavuot is traditionally the first day of the year when a woman returns to her spouse after a year away from home. Her return allows her to resume her duties as a wife and mother. Nisan is considered to be the first night of the year when a man returns to his wife after a year of separation.

Among the several events celebrated on both Shavuot and Nisan, one of the most significant is Tishrei. This is a celebration of the ten days leading up to Shavuot when the Jewish people were freed by the Pharaoh from the rule of King Pharaohs. The ten days of freedom lasted for forty days, and during those days, the people observed their rituals in order to please the new king. During the ceremonies, they sacrificed animals to please the new God, as well as, they gave gold and silver offerings to Molek, the God of the Pharaoh.
On the evening of Shavuot, as the people were preparing to begin their daily ritual of giving thanks to Molek, a storm broke over the Promised Land. The high winds blew so hard that the people could not see their Moses, who was being pulled out of the river. Because of this, the people waited for two days and night, expecting the miracle of Moses to be restored. When the rains came, they found the waters had receded, but they still did not know where their beloved Moses went.
On the morning of Shavuot, as the sun was just rising, a very wise man noticed a tear on the new year’s prayer. After reading the meaning of the tear, he rushed to the city of Pyrex, where he found the ark of Moses. He cleaned the ark and put it in the middle of the Promised Land, but the people did not notice the tear. The next day, as the people were going to observe the Jewish New Year, a cloud covered the place where the ark was resting. Only the Wise Man noticed what had happened and he quickly told the people what had happened, causing them to rush to the scene of the tear. The people noticed that the waters had receded and they realized that they missed their chance to offer homage to the greatest savior of the Jewish people.
