What is Yom Teruah?
Yom Teruah—also known as the Feast of Trumpets or Rosh HaShanah—is an incredible celebration during which believers come together to worship the God of Israel with shouts of joy and the blast of the shofar. In addition, this day beautifully symbolizes the second coming of our Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus).
Yom Teruah marks the beginning of the fall feasts. The name Yom Teruah literally means, “Day of Shouting/raising a noise.” This day has later become known as Rosh HaShanah, which means “head of the year.” It is the beginning of the civil year on the Jewish calendar. According to Jewish tradition, Rosh HaShanah is like an anniversary commemorating the creation of Adam and Chavah (Eve). It is a day to reflect on our special relationship with the God of the universe and recommit to walking in our created purpose—sanctifying the name of God in this world and bringing Him glory.
