The Hebrew calendar year begins in the autumn. The year opens with the Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Simchat Torah festivals. There is a feeling of change in the air. Summer is over. The weather is unstable. There are windy and rainy days but also hot, dry, dusty days. The fields are arid and colorless after the heat of summer.
Most of the numerous songs that have been written about the autumn are sad. Falling leaves, grey weather. It is a romantic season of lovers.
