    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu held an emergency security meeting at his office in Jerusalem on Tuesday night, after the wave of terror attacks in Jerusalem over the Rosh Hashanah holiday including massive riots on the Temple Mount and a lethal rock attack. "We will fight through all means necessary against rock throwers, firebomb and pipe bomb throwers, and those who shoot fireworks to harm citizens and police officers," said Netanyahu. "On the eve of the holiday it was again proven that rock throwing can kill," he added. "These activities will meet a very strong response of punishment and prevention. We...

    WND ^ | September 12, 2015 | Leo Hohmann
    The final day of the Shemitah year, Elul 29 on the Hebrew calendar, began at sundown Saturday and Rosh Hashanah, also called the Feast of Trumpets, starts Sunday at sundown. Among those who have been studying and teaching on the seven-year Shemitah cycle, the expectations have varied wildly. The Hebrew word “Shemitah” can be interpreted as “release” or “collapse,” which has led to predictions of stock market collapses and economic doom, wars, natural disasters and the period of time Jesus referred to as the “beginning of sorrows.” Jonathan Cahn, who lifted the Shemitah out of Old Testament obscurity (it is...

    Iran Deal Backers 'Will Have Blood on Their Hands' By Jennifer Wishon CBN News White House Correspondent Thursday, September 10, 2015 WASHINGTON -- Members of Congress are debating what many consider the most important vote of their careers: President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran. With the vote just one week away, both sides are applying pressure. Meanwhile, the issue has also spread into the 2016 presidential campaign. In a rare move, GOP hopefuls Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump joined forces on Capitol Hill to fight the deal. "This Iranian nuclear deal is catastrophic," Cruz said. The deal gives...

    Is September 2015 going to be a month that changes history? For months, there has been an unprecedented amount of buzz all over the Internet about what is going to happen in September. And without a doubt, we are going to witness a convergence of events during that month that is quite remarkable. What I have attempted to do in this article is to put together a list of things that we know will happen next month. Some of the lists that I have seen contain things that cannot be proven or that are simply inaccurate. And of course it...

    Dozens of Arab rioters began shooting fireworks at police on the Temple Mount on Wednesday morning, just hours before the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) began, and as soon as the holiest site in Judaism was opened to Jewish visitors. The rioters fired at police at the Mughrabi Gate, which is the only point of access for Jewish visitors to the site currently under the de facto rule of the Jordanian Waqf (Islamic trust). Yassam police special forces and Border Patrol officers pushed their way onto the Temple Mount and pressed back the rioters. Upon arriving on the holy site,...

    University Stops Closing School for Christian and Jewish Holidays American Center for Law and Justice The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), focusing on constitutional law, today urged the president of New York's Stony Brook University to reverse a troubling decision that ends a long-standing practice of closing school in observance of major Christian and Jewish holidays. The ACLJ calls the move "an unnecessary, ill-advised change that demonstrates hostility to members of all religious faiths." "This schedule change demonstrates hostility toward religion and departs from the American tradition of the government accommodation of religious practices," said Jordan Sekulow, Executive...

    The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, comes at a turbulent time for Israel. Israelis are observing Rosh Hashanah, the beginning of the High Holy Days and a time of reflection and prayer. There are 10 days of repentance leading up to the holiest day on the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement. The New Year comes at a time of political uncertainty in Israel, as the Palestinians seek recognition of an independent state at the United Nations. Many Israelis, like these people on the streets of Jerusalem, are skeptical about the prospects for peace. This unidentified man...

    From crispy rice to chickpea dumplings, Persian Jewish cuisine offers new and different ways to celebrate the New Year When American Jews usher in Rosh Hashanah next week, most will dip an apple in honey for a sweet new year. Some will eat a date, and others will display a bowl of pomegranates on the table. But when Persian-American Jews sit down to celebrate, their tables will be laden with an abundance of symbolic foods. In fact, they call the Rosh Hashanah meal a Seder, and the Aramaic blessings they recite follow a particular order. Cookbook author Reyna Simnegar, whose...

    WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama issued his traditional Rosh Hashana video greeting on Tuesday, wishing the Jewish people a year of peace and reiterating his administration's "commitment to the State of Israel."

Here in the United States, we’ve responded to our challenges by focusing on the things that really matter – friendship, family, and community," he says in his video greeting. "But this last year...

    Jews around the world gathered on Sunday for first-ever global Shofar FlashMob hosted by Art Kibbutz NYC, the newly-launched international artist community. The event was meant to give the Jewish tradition of sounding the Shofar daily during the Hebrew month of Elul a 21st century post-modern twist. The Shofar, traditionally made from a ram’s horn, was used in Biblical times for many purposes, including announcing the new month, to herald the commencement of the festivals and in battle. Besides being sounded during Elul, the Shofar is also sounded on Rosh Hashanah and at the conclusion of Yom Kippur. There are...

    I remember when I first started studying Torah I was so overwhelmed with the information and wisdom that HaShem was giving me that I gave little thought to the High Holy days of the Jews. That’s right, the Jews. That’s what I thought they were and after leaving the Messianic movement I thought that I had infringed on their territory. Many Jewish had actually told me I was infringing on their Judaism. So naturally I took that to mean don’t do the High Holy Days. As I grew in my knowledge of Torah, including the High Holy days I began...

This day marks the beginning of a period of reflection and repentance. It is a time to remember our responsibilities to our families, our communities, our country, and our world. This is also a time to remember who we are as Americans and our responsibilities to help our friends and allies as they seek peace and security. The people of Israel have overcome so many challenges, taken...

    With Rosh Hashanah fast on its way (Sept. 8, for those who didn't know), a number of Messianic blogs (like Derek's) have already delved into Psalm 27, which is traditionally canted during the month of Elul. The Just Jewish blog actually has links to some songs based on Psalm 27. Since part of the purpose of this website is to chronicle the prophetic significance of the yearly cycle of Appointed Times, I would be remiss if I didn't do the same. This is one of the many psalms that David composed while he was under attack. David here follows his...

    In a Rosh Hashanah greeting to Jews the world over, U.S. President Barack Obama called for the rejection of "the impulse to harden ourselves to others' suffering," urging empathy and "compassion to those in need." The first African-American president also called for resistance to "prejudice, intolerance and indifference" and for a strong stance against what he described as "the scourge of anti-Semitism, which is still prevalent in far too many corners of our world." Obama also expressed the desire to "work to achieve lasting peace and security for the state of Israel, so that the Jewish state is fully accepted...
