KINGSTON -- A festive get-together was held in Luzerne County to celebrate the start of the Jewish new year.

Rabbi Larry Kaplan of Kingston hosted about a dozen friends and family to mark Rosh Hashanah.

Rabbi Kaplan tells us the day marks the beginning of 10 days of prayer, leading up to Yom Kippur, a day of remembrance in the Jewish faith.

Food and desserts were shared in hopes of a sweet new year to come.
