The onset of fall means different things to different people, whether you're someone who can't wait to dive into pumpkin everything, or you simply love to dig out your favorite cozy sweaters. For people of the Jewish faith, the arrival of autumn also means breaking out Rosh Hashanah family traditions. Fall signifies the start of the High Holidays (or High Holy Days), and among them is Rosh Hashanah, the celebration of the Jewish New Year. While many families have staples that are custom to their annual festivities, it doesn't mean you might not need ideas for Rosh Hashanah family traditions to start in your own home.

Plus, it never hurts to create a family tradition that not only gets everyone involved, but can be carried on for years to come and become a cherished memory.
Curious about what traditions might work for you and your crew? Here are some Rosh Hashanah ideas that will have the whole family excited about ringing in the New Year. All that's left do is say "Shanah tovah!" to family and friends.
