Yom Terua - the Feast of Trumpets

Yom Terua -The Feast Of Trumpets

This feast is also known as the Day of Blowing and as Rosh Hashannah (civil new years day when the year number changes, traditionally, the anniversary of Creation, and biblically the first day of the year before Exodus 12.)


"...In the fullness of time, God sent forth his Son "(Gal 4:4).
"...when the day of Pentecost had fully come..." (Acts 2:1).



Rosh Hodesh

Literally, Rosh Hodesh is the head of the month. Naturally, it falls on the first of the month. As with all Jewish dates, the calendar date named the first of any month begine the previous evening at sunset. Evening and morning, one day. Genesis 1.

The “WHY” and “HOW” of celebrating each Hebrew Month:


The Month of Tammuz

On the 6th Sivan, exactly 49 days after the Exodus, the LORD revealed Himself on Mount Sinai. All 600,000 heads of households and their families heard the LORD speak, . 

Following this first revelation, Moses ascended Sinai where he communed with the Lord face to face for 40 days. During that period, God gave to Moases the remainder of the Torah. This date is commemorated in the festival of Shavuot.


The Month of Sivan

This month falls in May or June depending on the year.

In this month we have the feast of Pentecost (Shavuot), also known as the feast of weeks). It is the season of wheat harvest, Exodus 34:22, when an offering of the first fruits from their harvest was given, Exodus 23:16, Lev 23:15-22, Numb.28:26-31, Deut. 9-12, Prov.3:9-10.

The word Pentecost means counting to 50. It is 50 days from the barley harvest of Passover to the wheat harvest of Pentecost.
