ROSH HASHANAH

September 21-22, 2017

Rosh HaShanah is literally translated as "Head of the Year" but is often referred to as "The Feast of Trumpets". This feast commemorates the beginning of the Jewish Year with the blowing of the shofar, but it takes place in the 7th month of the Hebrew calendar.
Join us on Thursday, September 21 at 6:30 PM for our Rosh Hashanah service. It will be a time of celebrating new beginnings, blowing of the shofar and refreshments.

YOM KIPPUR

September 30, 2017

Yom Kippur, in Hebrew, means "The Day of Atonement". The word "Atonement" can be understood as "covering" which coincides with the sacrificial offerings associated with this day. This was the only day in a year that the High Priest was to enter the Holy of Holies within the temple. The Priest was to follow all of GOD's instructions down to the last detail before entering and making a sacrifice. If he did not do as instructed, all actions and sacrifices would be for nothing and the sins of the people and the priesthood would not be covered and forgiven.

SUKKOT - FEAST OF TABERNACLES

October 5, 2017 - October 11, 2017

Sukkot is known two ways in scripture, the “Feast of Tabernacles” (Sukkot) and “Feast of the Ingathering.” The word “Tabernacle” here refers to a temporary dwelling place. This feast is an annual reminder of GOD’s miraculous provision during the time Israel wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. This season is the most joyous and festive of the all feasts, because it celebrates GOD’s “goodness and provision” and wonderfully portrays the coming of the Messiah.
