7th New Moon / ‘Shemitah’ year
Lev 25:8 And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Lev 25:9 Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. Lev 25:10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.
The New Moon was not sighted from Israel 2nd Day (Monday) Sept. 14 , Yom Teruah was sighted from Israel sunset 3rd Day (Tuesday) Sept. 15, 2015. This was confirmed by Karaite Korner .com & Sighted Moon .com
Ex.12:2 This month (Abib – of the Passover) shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
Happy Yom Teruah – by Ex.12:2 the 1st day of Abib (vulgarly / mistakenly known as Nisan) is the Torah ‘Head of the Year’ ‘beginning’ is ‘rosh’; ‘year’ is ‘shanah’ – search as you might the Rabbinic notion of ‘rosh’; ‘shanah’ is Not verbally present at Lev.23:24 – Only Yom Teruah is.
Lev 23:24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first *day* of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.
*day* (commonly ‘yom’) is an added word not in the original Hebrew text. The Hebrew ‘Rosh’ and ‘Shanah’ are also nowhere to be found.
In case you’re wondering ‘first’ does not come from ‘rosh’ it comes from H259 echad
There has been a lot of talk lately of the ‘Shemitah’ year; formally – commonly known as the Sabbath or Sabbatical 7th Year. By Lev 25:3 the preceding 6yrs are not ‘Shemitah’ years. By Lev.25:8 seven of these 7th Years are to equal 49.
Then the Jubilee is to be sounded beginning on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement – Most being Rabbinic taught run with the idea that the first *day * of the 7th month is (erroneously) ‘Rosh ha Shanah’ even tho the Hebrew verbiage is not there. So they/some assume that 7/1 begins the Jubilee despite the fact it isn’t proclaimed until the 10th day of the 7th month – it just does Not.
The proclamation of the 50th Jubilee year is to begin on the 10th day of the 7th month in that still 7x 7th (49th) year thru out all the land of Israel. This will take time. The proclamation is to last 6 months (aprox.), heralding the true ‘Head of the Year’ (50th year) at Abib 1. Therefore the 7th (final 49th) ‘Shemitah’ year does not end 7/9 or 6/29; it ends in the 12th month; the last half of that last 49th ‘Shemitah’ year proclaiming the coming of the 50th Jubilee year that does not begin until Abib 1; the 1st day of the 1st Month the true ‘Rosh ha Shanah’ (Ex.12:2).
May your Teruah Shabbat be Blessed
