On September 6, 2021 at 6p.m.  begins a unique remembrance in the Jewish Tradition.  It is one of the High Holy Days called Rosh Hashanah.  The translation is head of the year.

The religious new year for Jews begins on this evening and is a 48-hours remembrance or a “long day”.

Around the world at p.m. the Shofar is blown.  The Feast of Trumpets begins.

There are 10 days for the blowing of the Shofar to Yom Kippur, considered the holiest day in the Jewish religion.

The 10 days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are called the “days of awe”.  This time, similar to Christian Lent, is a time of reflection, re-valuation and a reset of our spiritual lives.  The purpose of Yom Kippur is to individually and collectively purify your hearts by practicing forgiveness of sins of the others and sincere repentance of our own sins.  (Leviticus 23:27 : Day of Cleansing)

With the new year on our minds, we look back with reflect ion and look forward with anticipation.

Like we say “Hello”, many Jews would say “Shalom” which means peace.  But during this time, the greetings is “Shanon Tovah” – good year.

One tradition during this time is eating apples with honey. The symbolism is to usher in a sweet new year.

The blowing of the Shofar is a call to battle.  A call to remember.  A call to wake up.


The blowing of the Shofar …  a wake up call for the new year … a reminder of the possibility of transformation from the past to His Presence.
