Jews from around the world are preparing for their new year, which will be celebrated at Sundown on Sunday night.

In Jerusalem people rushed to the market ahead of the three-day Rosh Hashanah festival and security was heightened.

This is a period of soul searching for Jews and they celebrate by eating apples and honey with the hope that the next year will be “sweet.”
