Tonight marks the start of Rosh Hashanah, one of Judaism's most important holidays.

Literally translating to head of the year, Rosh Hashanah celebrates the creation of the world or the Jewish new year.

It begins tonight and runs until Sunday night at sundown.

We spoke to a representative from the Jewish Nevada about the holiday and the traditional symbolism that is used to celebrate it.

This holiday will eventually give way to the holiest of Jewish holidays, Yom Kippur, next week.
