Rosh Hashana

Rosh Hashana is the Jewish New Year  and this year it is celebrated on Thursday 29 and Friday 30th September.  A shofar (ram's horn) is blown in synagogues around the world to announce the new year, to proclaim divine kingship and to awaken worshippers to repentance.

The great Baptist preacher C H Spurgeon once said that in proclaiming the gospel, preachers should blow the rough ram's horn of divine law, to convict men of their sin, and the sweet silver trumpet of divine grace, to show them the answer to their sin.
