    Ancient Irish musical history found in modern India Press Trust of India | Melbourne May 15, 2016 Last Updated at 11:57 IST Ancient Irish musical traditions, thought to be long dead, are alive and well in south India, according to a new study of musical horns from iron-age Ireland. The realisation that modern Indian horns are almost identical to many iron-age European artifacts shows a rich cultural link between the two regions 2,000 years ago, said PhD student Billy O Foghlu, from The Australian National University (ANU). "I was astonished to find what I thought to be dead soundscapes alive...

    An archaeologist studying musical horns from iron-age Ireland has found musical traditions, thought to be long dead, are alive and well in south India. The realisation that modern Indian horns are almost identical to many iron-age European artefacts reveals a rich cultural link between the two regions 2,000 years ago, said PhD student Billy O Foghlu, from The Australian National University (ANU). "Archaeology is usually silent. I was astonished to find what I thought to be dead soundscapes alive and living in Kerala today," said the ANU College of Asia-Pacific student... The findings help show that Europe and India had...

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 19/9/11 | Elad Benari
    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...

    When the Stars Fall, Vol. 1 ^ | July 2010 | Michael Bugg
    Yom Teruah, better known as Rosh Hashannah, is upon us. I'd thought about creating a nice, elaborate blog post, but decided instead to take the opportunity to plug my book, When the Stars Fall, Vol. 1, by linking to the .pdf of the sample of Interlude 5: The Feast of Trumpets. Here are a few highlights to whet your appitite: However, [Rosh Hashannah is] not it’s Biblical name, which is Yom Teruah, the Day of the [Trumpet] Blast: The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of...

Esekiel 33:4 This coming Monday, Oct. 3, at sundown with great solemnity, the curved horn of the shofar will be lifted once again to sound the distinctive wailing notes -- Tekiah - Shevarim - Teruah - Tekiah -- in synagogues throughout the world to herald the Jewish New Year Rosh Hashanah.

    Prophecy Update ^ | Roy Reinhold
    A proper understanding of the fall feast days of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Succoth, provide clarity to God's plan for the prophetic fulfillment we call the end-times. They reveal much more detail than has been thought possible. Israel was commanded by God, to keep the annual feast days forever as a witness to all the nations. Even in the diaspora, faithful Jews celebrated the feast days as God our Father mercifully enabled them to survive as a distinct people in the midst of worldwide dispersion. They have been faithful in providing a witness to the world through the annual...
  • Harrari Harps Recreates Biblical Instruments

    The harp of Israel goes back to the Tanach. It is written that the first person to play was a man called Yuval who played on a kinor. The next person was King David, who was the one who brought it to a very high level of awareness. He used it as a spiritual instrument to connect to Hashem. Then it went right into the Beit Hamikdash where there were 4,000 Leviim who played the harp. The tribe of Levi taught their children at age three to play on the nevel, the kinor, the shofar, and the silver trumpet. They...

    SCHENECTADY -- To commemorate Tuesday's 35th anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling that affirmed a woman's right to an abortion, clergy blessed this city's new Planned Parenthood clinic in a ceremony dubbed "On Sacred Ground.""Today is more than about the building and about bricks and mortar," Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Linda Scharf said. "It's a blessing to demonstrate the support of the clergy." Since Jan. 22, 1973, when the high court handed down the landmark Roe vs. Wade decision, two sides of the issue have squared off. Opponents have campaigned to overturn unrestricted abortion laws, while proponents have stood firm for...

    Arab-Stolen Torahs Returned to Jerusalem Synagogue Six Torah scrolls stolen from a Jerusalem neighborhood were recovered by police near an Arab village, and three others were saved last week from a fire in Afula. Six Torah scrolls and a host of other religious items were stolen from the Ohr HaChaim synagogue in Pisgat Ze’ev, a northern Jerusalem neighborhood, several months ago. Police detectives embarked on an intensive mission to find them – and their efforts were crowned with success this week. Together with the Torah scrolls, also stolen were shofars (rams’ horns used on Rosh HaShanah and the days preceding...

    Radiocarbon dating of two Jewish ritual instruments found in London a century and a half ago has dashed hopes that they date from the period before the Jewish community was expelled in 1290. They are postmedieval and one of them may never have been finished or used in the synagogue. The shofar is a ritual instrument often made from a ram's horn, Tamara Chase and her colleagues explain in London Archaeologist... The first occurrence is in the book of Exodus, and they were also blown at Jericho on Joshua's orders, whereupon the walls fell down. Shofarot are used in the...

    Police Minister Supports Police in Western Wall Shofar Incident 15:13 Oct 25, '06 / 3 Cheshvan 5767 by Hillel Fendel The Knesset held a mini-debate Wednesday morning on the arrest of a young man for blowing a shofar at the Western Wall this past Rosh HaShanah. Several Knesset Members of the National Union party had submitted a Knesset query to Public Security Minister Avi Dichter, who oversees the police department, regarding the arrest. The basic thrust of all the queries, to which Dichter responded today, was: "How can it be that in a Jewish state, a man is arrested in...

    JERUSALEM – A Jewish man removed by Israeli police from a key section of the Western Wall for blowing the shofar, or ceremonial ram's horn, during prayer services for last weekend's Rosh Hashana high holiday has been barred from the holy site for the upcoming Jewish holidays, WND has learned. The shofar traditionally is blown hundreds of times during Rosh Hashana prayers. Shmulik Ben Ruby, a spokesman for the Jerusalem Police Authority, told WND the Jewish man, 19-year-old Jerusalem resident Eliyahi Kleiman, was taken forcibly from the Western Wall last weekend for fear the sound of the shofar would offend...

    Shades of the 1920's: A Jewish man was hauled off to the Old City police station in the middle of prayer for sounding the shofar during Rosh HaShanah services at the area known as the Kotel HaKatan. The incident occurred around 7:30 in the morning, at the northern-most section of the accessible Western Wall - a little-known area called the Kotel HaKatan, the Small Wall. It is considered to have extra sanctity, as it stands opposite the presumed spot of the Holy of Holies of the Beit HaMikdash. Yesterday morning (Sunday), a group of some 10 men and two women...

    As many of you already know, we are entering into the fall High Holy Days, comprised of the Feasts of Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles. Just as the spring Feastdays celebrate the First Coming of Messiah Yeshua, and Shavuot (Pentecost) celebrates the giving of the Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) to the Ekklesia in between the visitations of Yeshua, the Fall Feastdays look forward to His Second Coming—and in particular, the Feast of Trumpets looks forward to His Glorious Appearance in the clouds of heaven!The day which this year falls on September 23 (beginning at sundown the previous night) is known...
