It could be the day they first met, their first date or even their parents’ wedding day. This fit the timing for the trumpets in Leviticus 23:24-27. Today, the shofar has a special significance and place in the lives and culture of Jewish people.

That’s the choice many Jewish fashion writers, editors, bloggers, makeup artists and other fashion industry workers will have to make, as the first three days of New York Fashion Week overlap with Rosh Hashanah, according to a Tablet Magazine report Tuesday.
Christ gave the Lord’s Supper in place of Passover, so why not celebrate it then and watch in prayer with the following modification? The disciples understood their heritage that judgments fell at Passover. They were probably thinking Passover when Christ said,You don’t know the day or hour. The Greek word, eido, meant be aware, consider, understand. Christ was saying, You don’t understand, and each time He said it, He gave an example of a provision in the law for Passover a month later “as in the days of Noah” when the Flood came with Passover timing, but in the 2nd month, Gen 7:4,11; Exod 12:3.
And we can do the same every day of every year. We can write our own page in the Book of Life today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year. How do we accomplish this? By reviewing our actions and goals from the last year, noticing where we fell short of achieving our desired outcomes and then setting new targets for the new year. However, we must take another step: We must write on the blank pages of the book by visualizing our new goals in fine detail and feeling exactly what it would be like if we had already manifested these results. In other words, we must imagine the life we want, the behaviors to which we aspire as if they had been published in that book – sealed, already done, accomplished.
While the days may still be warm, the nights in September can be chilly. Your best bet is either an early outdoor ceremony earlier in the afternoon and then a reception inside or an all indoor ceremony. Make a note in your wedding invitation about your ceremony and reception plans so guests can be prepared and dress accordingly.
What is important is the person inside. Religion is something you either relate to or you don’t. So if you’re not religious and you are over thirty, it’s time to dig down deep and look inside yourself. Stop not dating people because your mother doesn’t want you to date them.
By Saturday, September 6th, we may be experiencing some frustrations, and our energy could be low. Those of us who over did it this past week may find we hit burnout this weekend. There could be some miscommunications and travel problems on Sunday and Monday. Especially Monday, September 8th, with Pluto and Jupiter at direct station on that day. There could also be money and family problems surfacing on Monday and Tuesday.
