Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins in the evening of Wednesday, September 24 2014 and ends in the evening of Friday, September 26 2014.
The Biblical name for this holiday is called Yom Teruah (In Hebrew, literally “day of shouting/raising a noise”) or the Feast of Trumpets.
On High Holy Days the Jews read from an orthodox machzor or Prayer Book.
There is a very interesting prayer that mentions the name of a high priest, or kohen gadol, which appears in various older machzors, going back over 100 years…His name is Yeshua. Read More

The ground incursion–please don’t allow anyone to call it an “invasion”– started on July17 after Prime minister Netanyahu made a statement explaining the reason for such a move. Israel is officially at war and it could last weeks if not months. Read More
Last Sunday afternoon, if you were in Paris France, you most likely were watching the 2014 World Cup Finals, the Tour de France or simply relaxing during your three-day Week-end for France’s Independence Day. Unless of course you were marching towards the “Place de la Bastille” with the rest of the 10 to 20,000 pro-Palestinian demonstrators.
