Wednesday evening began the Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah) for us. The month before, being the month of Elul, we blow our Shofars (ram's horns) every evening. This is the New Year (Rosh Hashanah) for the Jews. For us Hebraic believers it is the beginning of the Ten Days of Awe. This is a time of prayer, asking forgiveness from those whom we have done wrong to, and making right the wrongs we have done.
We then have Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement or The Day of Judgement). This is a day that we fast -no food, no water - that we should spend in prayer.
