Shalom Segula (Treasured Possssion)
It is with great anticipation that we write to you this month!! We are about to celebrate the glorious Fall Feasts.
It’s hard to believe that in just a few weeks we leave for Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles!! This feast is the culmination of the annual feasts and what a beautiful picture of eternity that it shows forth. Our minds can only imagine what that day is really going to be like.
We will be, once and for all, loosed from the weights and bondages that at times can hold us back from the radical worship the Holy One of Israel desires from His people.
We are blessed to get to rehearse this kind of worship year after year at the feast. What joy fills our hearts for this opportunity!!
We do it with love and zeal for the One’s who are worthy of all praise…YHVH and His precious Son Yeshua through the power of His Ruach HaKodesh!!!
This year our theme is LOVE ONE ANOTHER!! Our theme verses are Colossians 3:14-15; 14. “And above all these put on LOVE, which binds everything TOGETHER in perfect HARMONY. 15. And let the PEACE of MESSIAH rule in your HEARTS, to which indeed you were called in ONE BODY. And be THANKFUL.”
We will celebrate the following feasts on the following days:
Yom Teruah/Trumpets (Leviticus 23:23-25/Numbers 29:1-6):
Feast/Rosh Chodesh Service: Monday (2nd day), September 10th at 11:00 a.m.
This service is when the Shofar is sounded as a call to repentance while there is still time as well as announcing the King is coming.
Tashlich Service: Monday (2nd day), September 10th at 3:30 p.m.
This is an opportunity for us to partake in a Mikveh/Immersion. The Tashlich service will be held at Josephine Sandbar.
Yom Kippur/Atonement (Leviticus 23:26-32/Numbers 29:7-11):
Kol Nidre Service: Tuesday (3rd day), September 18th at 7:00 p.m.
Sundown is the beginning of this Sabbath and a complete fast for those who are able. At this service we will offer up prayers for repentance. It is traditional to wear white at this service representing purity before YHVH.
Midrash on Jonah: Wednesday (4th day), September 19th at 4:15 p.m.
This will be a Torah Study on the Book of Jonah; it will take place in the Sanctuary.
Neilah Service: Wednesday (4th day), September 19th at 6:15 p.m.
Sundown will complete the fast. We will break the fast together following the Neilah Service.
We pray that your Fall Feasts will be one of great shalom, joy and delight! We would love to hear about your time at Sukkot once we all return.
Attached is the September Torah Calendar; and as we reroll the scroll on the last day of Sukkot, we pray that this upcoming year in the Torah (Yah’s teachings and instructions) will be one of great insight and growth.
We love you with our whole hearts!!!
