Rosh Hashanah

“Tell the people of Isra’el, ‘In the seventh month, the first of the month is to be for you a day of complete rest for remembering, a holy convocation announced with blasts on the shofar.” Lev. 23:24

Rosh Hashanah is the first day of the Jewish New Year and it is widely believed that today marks the anniversary of the creation of the world. It was 5,772 years ago that God spoke the immortal words that flung the world into existence. This evening, Jews all over the world will flock to Synagogues to hear the sounds of the shofar, meditate on forgiveness, and pray for a sweet new year.

But this is not just a Jewish holiday; it is a holiday for all believers in God and a day we all should celebrate. After all, God’s commands are for everyone, not just for the Jews.

So Happy Rosh Hashanah and L’shanah tovah! (For a good year!)
