Trumpets, Feast of

Additional Links

TRUMPETS, FEAST OF . The 1st day of Tishri (October), the 7th month of the sacred year, was signalized by a ‘memorial of blowing trumpets,’ to call both God and the people to remembrance of their reciprocal positions. It was a day of holy convocation, on which no servile work might be done. The trumpets blown were probably of a different kind from those used at the ordinary new-moon festivals. At the Feast of Trumpets special offerings were made: a burnt-offering of a bullock, a ram, and 7 lambs, and a sin-offering of a kid of the goats; these in addition to the ordinary daily and monthly offerings (cf. Numbers 29:1-6 , Leviticus 23:24-25 ). This was one of the lunar festivals of the Jewish calendar, and was the most important of the new-moon celebrations.
