It's the Jewish new year, as far as I know. I don't really know the specifics though.

Well like most Jewish holidays (with the exception of Yom Kippur) it involves eating. Naturally special prayers are involved as well.

There's an important aspect of asking for forgiveness and preparing ones self for the new year.

One of the most important aspects of Rosh Hashana is hearing the Shofar. A ritual horn that alerts Jewish people that the new year has arrived and that they should prepare themselves spiritually. The shofar is sounded at specific times, and in specific ways, during the prayer services and is one of the essential things one must do on Rosh Hashana.

Aside from that there are various other customs for the sake of symbolism. One involves easting apples dipped in honey during the meal to symbolize a desire to have a sweet year.

Another is the "Seudat Rosh Hashana" which is a festive meal shared with family and friends.

Another is wishing as many people as possible a L'shana Tova... 'A Happy new year'.

The Holy Quran 29:19-20

See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah.

Say: "Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation; so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things.
