To mark the close of the Jewish year and the beginning of a new one, Haaretz photographers chose their best pictures of the year for this slideshow.
From a rare flurry of snow in Jerusalem to the prayers held by the Women of the Wall, and from every day events to historic occasions, these images offer a glimpse into Israeli life.
May the new year be a good one, and may it bring many more beautiful images to illuminate are lives. Shana Tova!
