Yom Teruah

Blow the ram's horn at the time of the New Moon {Rosh Chodesh},
at the full moon, on our festival day - Psalm/Tehillim 81:3
This past week, we were blessed to celebrate the first of YHVH's fall feast days,
Yom Teruah - known commonly as The Feast of Trumpets.

And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, 
‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you have a rest, 
a remembrance of blowing of trumpets, a set-apart gathering.
Leviticus 23:23-24

I will dance for You, YHVH \0/

Blessed are You, YHVH Eloheinu, King of the universe,
Who has set us apart by Your commandments and calls us to hear
the voice of the Shofar.

What's a celebration without cake?? :-)

Blessed are You, YHVH Eloheinu, King of the universe,
Who has kept us in life, sustained us,
and enabled us to reach this season. 

May we hear the sound of His calling!

Shalom and blessings!

Shema, Yisrael, YHVH, Eloheinu, YHVH Echad. 
Baruch shem k'vod malchuot l'olam va'ed. 

Hear, O Yisreal, YHVH our Elohim, YHVH is One. 
Blessed be His esteemed Name  
Whose Kingdom is forever and ever. Amein.
