"Hear, O Israel: the Lord is our God, the Lord is One"
Torah comes from the word horo'ah which means guidance for life. Sing Glory to the House of Winds! We are going Home! Shiloh we are on our way!
Leviticus 23, 24 & 25: And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 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. Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.
Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset Tishri 1 which is September 18, 2009, 6:41 PM Jerusalem time For your local time add one minute to the following chart.
Sep 19 Tishri 1 Rosh Hashana - the heart shall sound it's trumpet (freedom) and you shall offer a blessing with the fire. The sacrament of the heart filled jubilee as a new year begins on the 7th month. We walk to flowing waters on this day (tears of joy and sorrow of the rainbow filled sky) and gift giving (Tashlikh-casting off sins) helps us to receive love from our Relatives, just as our Sisters express this wisdom each day teaching us about the Law of Love, "a good heart". For when the heart is gifting glory, there shall be no work but joy filled days! This is the very receiving our True Blue (relatives) create as sacred space of the Crown of Holiness, for this is the returning to King David and his Royal Brothers. As Oneness, we are reminded of the eternal circle on the journey of rolling hills upon Mother's Earth. We remember the the bounty she provides and the goodness of a pureheart.
We celebrate eating apples dipped in honey. A yearning of sweetness of flower blossoms that come again. Our hearts are full when the flesh of our bodies remember the soul within, where the tears of joy gift to us love! Often blessed round loaves of sweet challah bread is used to symbolize the circle of life and yearning of a joyous new year. From where we came the eternal numinous flowing of heaven, our Souls do return. This holiday is the most important "teshuvah" or the "turning around". When we walk back into the arms of those whom we disagree, we become better children of God, living closer to empathy, astuteness and hearing with our hearts.
Our souls from heaven utter their perfection and receiving our family is what the returning joy is about. This is Truth of the Rainbow Warriors of Prophecy, who shall be questing eternal knowing as we belong together as Oneness. "Near is known which does flow, when the heart is shown and spoken for." In the East and the Return the holy circle 70 is known, the voice of God delivers us Home. Gift greetings "L'shanh tovah", meaning "for a good year to hear the wind". The eternal soul is all knowing in the Great Halls, when the sound of our hearts are shared! Let the trumpet blow, "We are going Home. What are we waiting for?" Let the Dawning find my Wind and let it blow across the Blue that's true, to be the Heart of me and you. My Relatives, let's go home! The Dawning Welcomes You!
Song: Henay Ma Tov
He-nay ma tov u-ma na-im, Sheh-vet a-khim gam ya-khad
He-nay ma tov u-ma na-im, Sheh-vet a-khim gam ya-khad.
Leader: Behold how good and pleasant it is for us to come together in unity and peace.
All:Although there is cruelty and injustice, we must bring compassion and harmony.
Leader: Although there is intolerance, we must work toward peace, acceptance and understanding. All: Although there is prejudice, we must work toward cooperation and compromise.
Leader: We must strive toward dignity for all. We dream of peace. We must move toward peace.
All: We must not lose our dream. We must not give up our striving.

The name "Rosh Hashanah" is not used in the Bible to discuss this holiday. The Bible refers to the holiday as Yom Ha-Zikkaron (the day of remembrance) or Yom Teruah (the day of the sounding of the shofar). The holiday is instituted in Leviticus 23:24-25.
The shofar is a ram's horn which is blown somewhat like a trumpet. One of the most important observances of this holiday is hearing the sounding of the shofar in the synagogue. A total of 100 notes are sounded each day. There are four different types of shofar notes: tekiah, a 3 second sustained note; shevarim, three 1-second notes rising in tone, teruah, a series of short, staccato notes extending over a period of about 3 seconds; and tekiah gedolah (literally, "big tekiah"), the final blast in a set, which lasts (I think) 10 seconds minimum. Click the shofar above to hear an approximation of the sound of Tekiah Shevarim-Teruah Tekiah. The Bible gives no specific reason for this practice. The shofar is not blown if the holiday falls on Shabbat. http://www.jewfaq.org/holiday2.htm
For the Rushing Winds, the heart bellows again!
Today I gift my heart away, to the souls of yesterday, for all they suffered into the wind, my heart remembers what they said. Hashanah, is going to be, the blessed beloved tree, and we will be there when we breath new life into all that believes. We are the heart of everyone, the heaven the stores of G_ah_d's pure love. And bounty comes this time of year to remind us of all of what's above. Now we are here to be with G_ah_d, because it's time to be out loud. To speak of wisdom and clouds of love, within our heartbeat, within our doves (peace).
Now Yom Ha-zikaron is here to help us bleed, to write a story of yesterday and blow it in the wind. We sing out loud for everyone to know of G_ah_d again. There is only one house we long, and it's the House of G_ah_d. Tell your children of the day, that we are going home, for all we suffered in the past offers rivers of the loved, and we will be the chosen ones who walk with love inside our heart, when we remember who we are, the Angels G_ah_d sent home.
And in a time when recollection has been gone, we pray to the wind, that we remember who we are, and listen to the wind. It's time for Yom Teruah, to singing of the Doves, and we can bellow out true love when we walk above. And down below where the rivers flow, the stream of tears that flow, we offer to the salvation to the song of love we long. We are going to be One, the family that longs to hear, the voices of Angels that sing in the Spring, the new beginning has offered us, the Fall where abundance grows. And our heart will sing again, because we know.
Exe 37:9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the win, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind. Thus saith the Lord G_ah_d; come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live again!
Eze 37:10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, and exceeding great army.
The House of the Beloved, the Star of David has come home, to rise such an army, the Army of G_ah_d, the Rainbow Warriors of Prophecy Arise!
