The Jewish High Holy Days - Rosh Hashana & Yom Kippur

Until the Babylonian Exile Jews who lived in the Kingdom of Judah around recognized four different New Years; the New Year for Years (the date when the year number increases in the Hebrew calendar also considered the date for the Creation of the world and the first humans). the date from which a king counted the years of his reign, when the cycle of Hebrew/Jewish festivals began and the first month of the calendar,  and the New Year for Trees (also known in Hebrew as Tu B’Shvat) when trees were planted.
Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) allows 10 days between the New Year and the Court of Judgement during which time one may make up for sins committed during the year.  The Shofar is then blown and the Angel of Death decides whether one is worthy to live another year.
