When Is Rosh Hashanah 5780/2019 observed?
Rosh Hashanah is commonly referred to as the Jewish New Year, as it literally means “the head of the year.” It is the first of the Jewish High Holy Days and was referred to in the Bible as Yom Teruah, which means “day of shouting or blasting.”
- “Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, ‘Speak to the children of Israel, saying: “In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.”’”—Leviticus 23:23-25
Because the Feasts of the Lord are calculated on a lunar calendar, the dates of the actual celebration will vary from year to year. However, Rosh Hashanah will typically fall in September or October on any given year. Rosh Hashanah 5780/2019 will fall on September 29th through October 1st, kicking off the first of the three Fall Feasts of the Lord.
Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the Days of Awe—a 10-day period of introspection and repentance that culminates at Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement.

The Prophetic Significance of Rosh Hashanah 5780/2019
As with any new year celebration, there is a reflection on the year before and anticipation for what lies ahead. The Feast of Trumpets is no exception. It was a time of reflection and repentance, followed by a season of restoration and obedience for the children of Israel. And the same blessings can be released in Believers’ lives today.
During Rosh Hashanah, it is customary to blow the shofar, serving as a call to repentance and a reminder that God is faithful.
For Believers, the celebration can serve as a reminder to reflect on times during the previous year that you may have allowed distance and distraction to come between you and the Lord. After that time of reflection and repentance, you can boldly proclaim that you are ready to receive your inheritance.
When observed, Rosh Hashanah allows you time not only for repentance but also for alignment. It is only through alignment with God's purpose that you can mature in your faith, making room for the anointing He has placed on you.
Prophetically speaking, the Church is entering a time of awakening. As time draws closer to the return of Yeshua, there is an urgency to claim your place at the Lord's table.
- “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.”—Psalm 23:5-6
Rosh Hashanah 5780/2019 will propel God’s faithfulness into Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur is a celebration that brings hope and guidance for the year ahead.
For Believers, Rosh Hashanah 5780/2019 serves as a reminder to put on the yoke of God. When there is submission, there is also a willingness to be led. Just as it is used with oxen, a yoke is an instrument that turns the head and literally directs the path you will travel.
Who better to direct your path than the Messiah?
- “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”—Matthew 11:28-30
Rosh Hashanah 5780/2019 is a time for personal and prophetic revelation about the year ahead. The feast will present you with the opportunity to be a guest at the Lord’s table, giving you ears to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying.

How to Take Your Place at God’s Table
As a Believer, through the blood of Yeshua, you have become an heir of all the promises made to the children of Israel.
- “And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”—Galatians 3:29
However, in order to receive your inheritance, you must identify these promises and claim them as your own. There is power in the spoken word when you are seated with God’s Holy Spirit.
- “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”—Mark 11:23-24 (emphasis added)
There is a standing invitation for you to dine at the Father's table, but you must pull up a seat. He wants nothing more than to pour out prosperity and provision in your life, but as with any gift, you must receive it and put it to good use.
And you will again obey the voice of the Lord and do all His commandments which I command you today. The Lord your God will make you abound in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good. For the Lord will again rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this Book of the Law, and if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.”
The simple truth is that there are blessings in obedience. Allow Rosh Hashanah 5780/2019 to be the catalyst of change in your year ahead. Seat yourself at God’s table for the Fall Feasts and spark the fuel of promise that has lain dormant for far too long.
