The Season to Show God’s Love
Israel is entering into a prophetic season, the High Holy Days. This is a time of new beginnings, atonement, and a celebration of God’s provision in the past as well as His future provision. It’s traditions are steeped with symbolism of both God’s judgment and redemption. It is considered a future prophecy that represents His longing to be reconciled to His people.
Rosh Hashanah, which is the Jewish New Year, is also known as the Feast of Trumpets or Yom Teruah. Yom Teruah is commonly translated as “blowing of the trumpet.” It refers to the sound of Trumpets that will announce the return of our Lord Yeshua and the feast we will eat with Him at the wedding supper of the Lamb. (Follow this link to learn more about the significance of this feast.)
The people of Israel celebrate the Jewish feast days with intention, thought, and respect. They honor not only the tradition but the prophetic significance behind them. Rosh Hashana is not only the start of the New Year on the Jewish calendar, but is also the beginning of the 10 days of Repentance. It signifies a time of forgiveness and healing broken relationships. Families will come together around a big dinner table where they will unite over a feast, celebrating God’s goodness.
And what better time to show kindness to the less fortunate? There are many families in Israel who have just recently made Aliyah. These will be the first Jewish holidays and biblical feasts they will celebrate in the Land. We want them to see God’s amazing provision.
In these trying times, when many are going through an incredibly rough season on every possible front, our goal is to help meet the needs of every family, single mother and her children, or elderly Holocaust survivor without provision during these High Holy Days.
“Those the Lord has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”
The focus of our ministry during these biblical holidays – Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) – is to reveal God’s message of salvation, love, and kindness. We have joy in assisting them, as it is written in Isaiah 51:11. By your act of generosity, you can reveal the kindness of the Father to those who may have never experienced Him.
Consider supporting our High Holy Days Humanitarian Project. A gift as small as $40 can bless one family with a special basket filled with celebratory foods for the holidays. We’re grateful for your generous heart, your loving prayers, and the care you show the people of Israel through the support of the work God has commissioned us.
