The blast of the shofar and victory over sin

Growing up in a Jewish family, I always looked forward to Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets), also know as Rosh HaShanah (New Year’s). From my very first time experiencing Yom Teruah, I continued to looked forward to gathering in the synagogue for these special services. For me, these services always held a high level of excitement because on top of the regular things that were done on Shabbat, such as liturgy and reading of Scripture, on Yom Teruah the shofar would be blown 100 times. From the first time I heard the shofar’s voice, I knew there was something unique about its powerful sound. It was the first time in my life in which I remember experiencing and feeling the presence of G-D in a re

Participating in the newness from G-D

Is it New Year’s again? Every year, about this time of year, (no matter what calendar you follow) websites and social media fill to overflowing with articles and posts deriding the Jewish people and any other person for not recognizing that “the Bible says the New Year is on Nissan 1 (Abib 1), which falls somewhere within March or April on the Roman (proclaimed by these folks, “the Pagan”) calendar. These closet anti-Semites proclaim that due to their vast knowledge of Scripture they know more about the Bible, and know the Hebrew text better than thousands of Jewish people for thousands of years. Their announcement that Tishri 1, known as Rosh HaShanah (New Year’s), is actually Yom Teruah (D

The significance of the shofar blast

In a few days, we will be celebrating the Feast of Trumpets and Jews along with a growing number of Christians will gathered together to observe this Biblical Holy Day. There will be special services and time devoted to repentance and introspection, but the focal point of the day will be when the shofar is sounded. This simple trumpet made from an animal’s horn produces a sound that connects eternity to eternity. The traditional blasting of the shofar one hundred times is both exciting and empowering to the hearer. This powerful sound, which is of such great importance that it was commanded by G-D to be heard by the Children of Israel, has an even greater importance. It is one that is often

The Spiritual Mystery of the Shofar—And Why So Many Christians Misuse It

For the majority of those who will gather in synagogues to hear the shofar, the purpose of the sound is to mark the opening of the doors of repentance for the period of time between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur.

Daily reminders of God’s promises

As human beings, we spend a large portion of our lives in a mental wrestling match between trying to remember things and trying to forget things. Most of us have piles of stuff in our homes not because we use them, but because they have the innate value of triggering a memory. We have a cupboard full of coffee cups, even though most of us use only one of them. In our closet remains clothing that we will never fit into again and even if we did, the garments are far out of style so we wouldn’t even consider wearing them. We have photo albums filled with pictures of events that we periodically open in order to punish our children as we retell the story of our exciting youth to them for the “zil
