Rosh Hashanah

There will be plenty more info to come, but in the meantime… did you know:

  • Messianics celebrate this as an annual reminder that there will be a final judgment day and that we need to continue to seek cleansing while we “wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,” (Titus 2:13)
  • Rosh Hashanah is also called the Feast of Trumpets in the Old Testament?
  • Rosh Hashanah is considered the Jewish New Year?
  • Rosh Hashanah is more about repentance and not the celebration of a New Year like we celebrate at the turning of the calendar from one year to the next?
  • Rosh Hashanah is also called “Yom Teruah” or the Day of Blowing?
  • The blowing of the trumpets (Shofar) on Rosh Hashanah is a call to repentance?
  • During the Feast of Trumpets a Tashlich ceremony is often celebrated during which participants cast off past sins in the form of bread crumbs into the water of a lake, ocean, river, etc. while recalling Micah 7:19 – “You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl (tashlich) all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.”

More to come later!
