Jews in Jerusalem and around the world celebrate the Jewish New Year, 5777

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: There are actually two Jewish Holy days that happen on the same day. Steve Herzig my broadcast partner will explain how Rosh Hashanah and the Feast of Trumpets do happen the exact same day.

SH: Rosh Hashanah is the head of the year, the Hebrew month of Tishri, the seventh month.  But I always tell people who are teachers, their new year starts in August or September. Bankers usually have some sort of business New Year that starts in July.

And so Jewish people have the seventh month; which has three major events, the fall feasts, that take place and yet it’s traditionally called a New Year. It was a civil New Year back in early Jewish history. It is a day that is celebrated in just remarkable ways.

JD: And that horn of course from the ram was just the Shofar in celebration of the location, Mount Moriah, which is the Temple Mount in Jerusalem which, Jewish scholarship says is the location of the Garden of Eden, all of that coming together. 

The celebration of creation, 5,777 that’s the number of this Jewish New Year. And that would mean 5,777 years ago creation took place if they’re counting from creation until today.  And the Feast of Trumpets when they will go to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and blow the trumpets. I’ve seen 10,000 men blowing shofars or trumpets there. That’s to bring attention to the excitement of the celebration of the New Year, is it not?

SH: It absolutely is Jimmy, and all my life ...  10,000 shofars; can you describe that a little for me? That must have been amazing.  

JD: It was an unbelievable sound. Now they’ll be thousands that will go out there for this celebration of Feast of Trumpets but this time that I heard them they estimated 10,000 men blowing their shofars and trumpets. Every Jewish home has a shofar in celebration of what you were just talking about Abraham and Isaac there on Mount Moriah. The two coming together, it’s really amazing.

Steve Herzig, my broadcast partner and National director of Friends of Israel, explaining the two Jewish Holy days; the Feast of Trumpets and Rosh Hashanah.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

On Rosh Hashanah the Jews celebrate creation of Adam and Eve 5,777 ago, which looks to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

Rosh Hashanah celebrates creation that took place there in the Garden of Eden 5,777 years ago. The Garden of Eden, by the way, is the location where Jesus when He returns to the earth will build the Temple and will rule and reign from that spot on the Temple Mount, Mount Moriah, in Jerusalem. Rosh Hashanah the new Jewish year does remind us that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
