You don’t have to be Jewish to care about Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year). Here are five things you should know about the holiday:
- It begins (this year) at sundown on Wed. September 24
- The biblical name of the holiday is the Feast of Trumpets (in Hebrew, Yom Teruah)
- Rosh Hashanah begins a 10-day period of reflection and repentance leading up to Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement)
- You can get a Messianic perspective of this holiday by visiting the Rosh Hashanah page on our website, where you’ll find articles, cool videos, free Rosh Hashanah e-cards to send your Jewish friends and more!
- If you live near one of our branches, come hear the blowing of the shofar and experience a Messianic High Holiday service… it’s the perfect opportunity to bring a friend (Jewish or not) who needs to know Jesus!
