There are 5 names for Rosh HasShanah:

  1. Rosh Hashana literally means "Head of the Year" because Rosh Hashana marks the point when we begin the new calendar year (e.g. from 5772 to 5773).
  2. Yom Harat Olam means "The Birthday of the World."
  3. Yom Hazikaron means "The Day of Remembering."
  4. Yom Hadin means "The Day of Judgment."
  5. Yom Teruah means "The Day of Sounding (the Shofar)." This is the actual name that the holiday is called in the Torah.

Shanah Tovah u’meitukah, 
Happy and Sweet New Year!
