Maybe for you, September means the start of the school year — or the return to a busy schedule after a restful summer.
For Jewish people, the fall season usually means preparing for the High Holidays:
- The New Year (Rosh Hashanah), Monday, September 10th – Tuesday, September 11th — In general, even the most secular Jewish people will celebrate Rosh Hashanah (literally— the head of the year).
- The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), Wednesday, September 19th —This is considered the holiest day of the Jewish calendar and will be observed in some way by nearly every Jewish person.
- The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot), Monday, September 24th — Sunday, September 30th— Fewer Jewish people celebrate this feast, although, after the seriousness of the first two, the Feast of Tabernacles is a lot of fun and known as a time of great rejoicing!
For you, as a believer in Yeshua the Messiah, these High Holidays still have great meaning and can bring you a great blessing.
