Tune in for this annual broadcast celebrating the Jewish New Year, as Classical 91.5 presents its annual, live broadcast from Temple B’rith Kodesh of the evening service for Rosh Hashanah. Hosted by WXXI's Jeanne Fisher, Live from Temple B'rith Kodesh: A Rosh Hashanah Celebration will be broadcast on Sunday, September 9, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. on Classical 91.5, and is made possible by a grant from the Louis S. and Molly B. Wolk Foundation.
Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of the Jewish year, and this year is the 5,779th Birthday of the World. It is a time of family gatherings and special meals. Symbolic foods, such as apples dipped in honey, represent the hope for a sweet year ahead, and round challah bread symbolizes the cycle of the year.
Temple B'rith Kodesh was founded in 1848 as an Orthodox synagogue with 12 members. It is the oldest Jewish congregation and the largest Reform temple in the greater Rochester area.
