Numbers 28:11-13 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Rosh Chodesh: New Moon
11 “On the first of the month you are to present to Adonai a burnt offering of two young bulls, one ram, and seven flawless male lambs a year old, 12 with three tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering with each bull, and two tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering with the ram, 13 and with each lamb a tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil for a grain offering, a burnt offering as a pleasing aroma, an offering by fire to Adonai.
Tishrei or Tishri: תִּשְׁרֵי tishré or תִּשְׁרִי tishrí); from Akkadian tašrītu “Beginning”, from šurrû “To begin”) is the first month of the civil year (which starts on 1 Tishrei) and the seventh month of the ecclesiastical year (which starts on 1 Nisan) in the Hebrew calendar. The name of the month is Babylonian. It is an autumn month of 30 days. Tishrei usually occurs in September–October on the Gregorian calendar.
Tishrei, the first month of the Jewish year, bridges the summer and autumn months. It is a time for renewal and introspection as we begin a new year.
The month of Tishrei is full of momentous and meaningful days of celebration. Beginning with the High Holidays, in this month we celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Ten Days of Repentance, Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Simchat Torah. Each one is filled with its own meaningful customs and rituals. Some are serious, awesome days set aside for reflection and soul-searching. Some are joyous days full of happy and cheerful celebration.
But all of these days, throughout the month of Tishrei, are opportunities to connect, be inspired and become more fulfilled and in tune with our true inner selves. Tishrei is considered the “head” of the year and the reservoir from which we draw our strength and inspiration throughout the year ahead. Take advantage of the opportunities in this month, and make every day significant. May it be a year of happiness, health, peace and prosperity.
The month of Tishri, which falls during the months of September and October on the Gregorian calendar, is probably the busiest time of the year for Jewish holidays. In the month of Tishri, there are a total of 13 days of special religious significance, 7 of them holidays on which work is not permitted.
These holidays include the holidays known as the “High Holidays,” the most important holidays of the Jewish year: Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
