Erev Rosh Hashanah

The day before Rosh Hashanah is the final day in the Jewish calendar year. In the early morning hours, thousands of people will head to the big shul to attend the lengthy Selichos which is followed by Shachris.
The shofar will not be blown on Erev Rosh Hashanah to separate between the blowing of the shofar during the month of Elul and the shofar blowing of Rosh Hashanah. There is a custom to fast on Erev Rosh Hashanah and some make a siyum after davening to allow those who want to eat to eat.
