Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, falls on the Hebrew calendar dates of 1 and 2 Tishrei. Here are the coinciding secular dates for the upcoming years:
2016: October 2 (at sundown) - 4
2017: September 20 (at sundown) - 22
2018: September 9 (at sundown) - 11
2019: September 29 (at sundown) - October 1
2020: September 18 (at sundown) - 20
Note: The Jewish calendar date begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus all holiday observances begin at sundown on the secular dates listed, with the following day being the first full day of the holiday. Jewish calendar dates conclude at nightfall.
Does this years Rosh Hashanah represents the beginning of a "Shmita" year - that's the end of a seven-year cycle when land is left idle, debts are forgiven, and you "open your heart" to the unfortunate. ?

Holidays are observed according to the time of the location where one finds oneself, not according to Israel time.

Rosh Hashanah at sundown?
I've been curious.... I know Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown of the day before, but is that sundown here in the US (or anywhere) or sundown in Israel? They are several hours different than the US, so that's why I ask because it puts a whole different time on it depending on where the sundown is observed. I'm a little confused on this so clarification would be nice. Thanks. :)

You should comment here: This year Rosh Hashanah represents the beginning of a "Shmita" year - that's the end of a seven-year cycle when land is left idle, debts are forgiven, and you "open your heart" to the unfortunate.

Why does Rosh Hashanah fall out of the correct season should it not fall after the fall equinox. Leviticus 23:4 says they shall be proclaimed in their seasons (the feasts of the L_rd) Is there something in the Hebrew that I don't understand?
