Can I Use a Bank on Rosh Hashanah 2023?

The following is important information regarding business closures on the Jewish New Year.

The Jewish New Year, or Rosh Hashanah, begins on the evening of September 15, 2023, and lasts for ten days until the evening of September 17, 2023. It's a time of celebration and introspection, often referred to as the Jewish New Year. Those that celebrate do so with significant rituals such as religious services, special dinners, and gifts to those in need.

Amidst all the celebrations, some may be concerned about whether or not businesses are closed in observance of the Jewish holiday. What follows is essential information.

What hours do banks keep in 2023 for Rosh Hashanah?
Most banks will be open during their regular business hours on Rosh Hashanah because it is not a federal holiday. Unfortunately, the holiday is on a Saturday this year, and most financial institutions are either closed or have reduced hours on Saturdays. In that case, financial institutions will remain closed as usual. During the Sunday day of rest, no financial institutions are open for business. For their banking needs, customers can use either automated teller machines or the internet. If you need to know the Saturday hours of your bank, you should call your local branch.
