L’Shana Tovan! (happy new year)

so what’s Rosh Hashanah?

“And he shall wash his basar with mayim in the Makom Kadosh, and put on his garments, come out, and offer his olah and the olah of HaAm, and make kapporah for himself, and for HaAm.”
Vayikra 16:24, Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

translated into a format and language that we’re more familiar with…

“He shall bathe himself with water in the sanctuary area and put on his regular garments. Then he shall come out and sacrifice the burnt offering for himself and the burnt offering for the people, to make atonement for himself and for the people.”
Leviticus 16:24, King James Version (KJB)

so keep reading…

“The name ‘Rosh Hashanah’ is not used in the Bible to discuss this holiday. The Bible refers to the holiday as Yom Ha-Zikkaron (the day of remembrance) or Yom Teruah (the day of the sounding of the shofar). The holiday is instituted in Leviticus 23:24-25.”

as quoted below…

“24 Speak unto the Bnei Yisroel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a Shabbaton, a zikhron teru’ah mikra kodesh. 25 Ye shall do no melekhet avodah therein; but ye shall offer an offering made by eish unto Hashem.”
Vayikra 23:24-25, Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

translated into a format and language that we’re more familiar with…

“24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. 25 Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.”
Leviticus 23:24-25, King James Version (KJB)

when?

“Rosh Hashanah will occur on the following days of the secular calendar:
Jewish Year 5773: sunset September 16, 2012 – nightfall September 18, 2012″

and why? the sovereignty of G-d (pronounced G-dash-D)!

so greet our Jewish brothers and sisters saying L’Shana Tovan! and grab a good piece of challah bread (one of my favorites)…

special thanks to Tracey R Rich from Judaism 101
