Rosh Hashanah



Rosh Hashanah

is the Jewish feast that starts the new Jewish year.

entering the year 5779.

Jesus was Jewish and

he celebrated this feast each year.

Rosh Hashanah

is a feast where the Jews

focus on and celebrate

that God is King.


Jews remind themselves that we are not to be on the throne of our life.

Only God can be on the throne of our life.


This feast lifts up the sovereignty of God.

-

This feast also helps the Jewish people

get

"on fire"

for the God of all Creation.


See our "on fire" page



Rosh Hashanah

is a time of

Joy!


It also has an underlying concept

of

being serious about your relationship to God.


Jews rejoice in the New Year.

Jews are serious about getting right with God and with people.

This is a time of taking note of our

past, present, and future choices.


In the Bible, God tells us that he sets before us life and good and death and evil. Then he tells us to choose.

Jews are reminded that every day they make choices for or against God and his ways.

This is a time of year where Jews focus on solidifying their determination to follow God more closely.


Trumpets

Rosh Hashanah has several names

including

The Feast of Trumpets.


The blowing of trumpets is an important part of the feast.


The month before Rosh Hashanah

is a month called Elul.


Introspection

&

Drawing close to God

&

Repentance

are important themes

of the month

of Elul.


The month of Elul is a time of

preparation of the heart

for the New Year

and for Yom Kippur.


It is a time of reviewing the past year and taking stock.


It is a time of repentance.


The Jewish people blow the trumpet each day in Elul to

awaken themselves spiritually.


During the month of Elul,

    the Jewish people read Psalm 27 often - sometimes daily.

Praying for the Jewish People


Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer

to God for Israel

is that they might be saved.

Romans 10:1 KJV


Dear Loving Lord,

As the new Jewish year begins, I pray that each Jewish person would get a new understanding of who Jesus is.

I pray that each one's eyes are opened to the truth of Jesus as the true Messiah.

May this year be a year of extraordinary decisions for Jesus Christ.

May the truth of Jesus' identity and his love transform Jewish lives and bring new joy to the world.

Lord, may 5778 be the greatest year for Jewish salvations that the world has ever known.

Amen



There will be a Jewish temple built one day in Jerusalem.


Basically all of the items needed

in a Jewish temple are ready to go.

Below is a video showing a

Jewish ceremony of lighting the menorah.


"Ha Shem" means "THE Name" which means "God."
