2023-2024

Yom Teruah

Rosh Hashanah

Tishri 1, 5784

September 15, 2023

Leviticus 23:23-25

Significance: The Israelites would observe the new year and the new moon with the blowing of shofars (trumpets), sacrifices, and a call to repentance before the Lord.

New Testament: For Christians, trumpets foreshadow the new beginning that will be ushered in by the second coming of Yeshua to the Earth.

Yom Kippur

Day of Atonement

Tishri 10, 5784

September 25, 2023

Leviticus 23:26-32

Significance: Once a year, the high priest would offer an animal sacrifice to the Lord to temporarily atone for (cover) the sins of the people. He would sprinkle the animal's blood on the ark of the covenant and release a live goat into the wilderness as a symbol of the release of sins.

New Testament: This day foreshadowed the time when Christ would permanently remove our sin through his death and resurrection from the grave.

Sukkot

Feast of Tabernacles

Tishri 15-22

September 30 - October 7, 2023

Leviticus 23:33-34

Significance: After leaving Egypt, God provided the Hebrews with food and shelter during their wanderings in the wilderness. This eight-day harvest festival was also called the feast of Booths becuase the Isrealites built small, makeshift dwellings to commemorate God's provisions.

New Testament: In the millennial kingdom, Christ will provide dwelling places for his people. This feast also signifies the Son of God, or God's provision, becoming flesh and dwelling (or tabernacling) with mankind.
