Yom Teruah 2011

This New Moon marks the first of the biblical Fall feasts- the Day of Trumpets.

Leviticus 23:24-25 "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. You do no servile work, and you shall bring an offering made by fire to יהוה.’ "

Let's Celebrate!

  1. So do you consider the sliver a New Moon?

  2. Yes, Greg. I think you already knew that.

    It would be fairly obvious that there is no visible moon in a dark sky. You wouldn't have to wait and watch for that. Seeing the sliver is the opposite.

    YHWH set-apart the light from the darkness- not the other way around. I believe it makes more scriptural sense to watch for the sliver as the New Moon than calling a dark moon the New Moon.

    You might consider reading this post, which presents an interesting perspective on the subject:
