The Hebrew Month/Season of Tishrei [Tishri]: WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT? [Updated October 2021]


It is not always easy to teach about this Month’s Special BIBLICAL SPIRITUAL MEANING because it is an extremely busy month. Its first day is also a BIBLICAL APPOINTED TIME/MO’ED [Leviticus 23]! So, as we transition into A New Hebrew Month, MARCHESHVAN a.k.a CHESHVAN a.k.a HESHVAN, let us understand this BIBLICAL SEASON we Transitioning from well. A hint as to what the Coming Season is about has been shared.


1. Tishri 1 [c. 3760 BCE]:
Adam and Eve are formed – Gen 1:26-31

First Sin and REPENTANCE – Genesis 3

On the 1st of Tishrei, on the 307th day of the Great Flood, Noach dispatched a dove from the ark, for the third time (see “On This Date” for Elul 17 and Elul 23). When the dove did not return, Noah knew that the Flood’s waters had completely drained from the earth. On that day, Noach removed the roof of the ark; but Noah and his family, and all the animals, remained in the ark for another 57 days — until the 27th of Cheshvan — when the suface of the earth was completely dry and YAH commanded them to leave the ark and resettle and reppopulate the earth.
