rosh hashanah celebrities

Jewish celebrities, they’re just like us! They celebrate Rosh Hashanah; they eat apples and honey and challah; they make dad jokes about “shofar so good.”

To keep these good vibes going, we rounded up 26 Jewish celebrities (plus one bonus Celine Dion!) with their Rosh Hashanah celebrations and messages.

1.  Israeli actress Gal Gadot shared an image of her cheers-ing with friends or family. She wrote, “Today is the Rosh Hasahna (Jewish new year) May the new year be filled with special simple moments to cherish -laughter, happiness and good ppl surrounding us❤🍎🍯💋✌” (A+ use of emojis, Gal!)

2. Jewish comedian Sarah Silverman joked she is no longer wishing people “Happy Holidays,” she’s only saying “Shana Tova!”

No more of this “Happy Holidays” bullshit we’re gonna say SHANA TOVA again! #WarOnRoshHashanah #ImKiddingDummyDontAtMe

3. Fellow Jewish comedian Billy Eichner rang in the Jewish New Year at Radio City Music Hall, watching Ben Platt perform.

Brought in the Jewish New Year the only way I know how – watching my friend @BenSPLATT bring @RadioCity to its feet multiple times. An INCREDIBLE show. Congrats Ben!

5. Lena Dunham performed tashlich, a Jewish tradition that symbolizes casting off your sins. She wrote on Instagram, “As I was joyfully letting it all go on a windy Sunday on the Cornish coast, a massive wave hurled itself over the sea wall and onto my head. The group of tweens in the nearby parking lot may have laughed like I got what I deserved, but I laughed because I’d just given away anything that I could be punished for. I’m thankful for this time of reflection. Happy Rosh Hashanah friends 💙
