The common greeting at this time is L’shanah tovah (“for a good year”). This is a shortening of “L’shanah tovah tikatev v’taihatem” (or to women, “L’shanah tovah tikatevi v’taihatemi”), which means “May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year.” That is from the following site: http://www.jewfaq.org/holiday2.htm
Basically, this is the beginning of one of four years on the Jewish calendar. Each year starts in a different month. This particular one falls during the time of reflection and repentance, of examining one’s life and one’s relationship with G-d.
While a lot of people call this time Rosh Hashanah, in the bible it is actually called Yom Ha-Zikkaron (the day of remembrance) or Yom Teruah (the day of the sounding of the shofar). The shofar is blown on this day.Would you like to hear a shofar as it is commonly blown on this day. Go here: Shofar or, if that is not working: http://www.jewfaq.org/sound/shofar.mid
Each of the feasts in the bible that YHVH instituted are prophetic. They align with events connected to the first and second comings of Messiah Yeshua/Jesus. It is a fascinating thing to read about. This feast is prophetically connected to Yeshua coming for His bride…the true believers.

I hope you will check it out. I also hope that you will give some thought as to what YOUR relationship with YHVH, the Creator. There are some really tough times coming. If you are not one of those who belong to Yeshua/Jesus, you won’t make it through. And it is not just about this physical life…it is about eternity and where and how you will spend it.
