This idea stems from the tradition that Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, marks the creation of the world. One such item which is of much importance in Judaism is the shofar. To print out a page, you click on a picture of the coloring page.
Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year – literally translated it means “head of the year” or “first of the year.” It is a time for reflection on the past and preparing for the future. It is a religious holiday for the Jewish community and is celebrated on the first and second days of Tishri. Rosh Hashanah is a day of rest, casting off the old year and making wishes for a sweet new year to come. As one of the High Holy Days, it is important to teach children the meaning of Rosh Hashanah and how to celebrate it properly. One way is to use Rosh Hashanah coloring pages for kids so you can explain the meanings behind the pictures. Below are several websites that offer children’s coloring pages for Rosh Hashanah so you can share this holiday with your child.
Note well the words “I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you.” Certainly Paul had been instructed on the proper wording by the Twelve after his conversion on the Damascus road. But Paul’s words also reflect his direct ordination as an apostle and bishop by Christ Himself. The four New Testament renderings of the Words of Institution differ slightly from each other, but not in any essentials. All four use the same Greek words to make crystal-clear that the consecrated bread and wine ARE Jesus’ body and blood. Just as the Old Covenant was ratified by the blood of animal sacrifices, so the New Covenant is ratified with Jesus’ once-for-all Sacrifice on Calvary. Christ does not “die again” on the altar. The priest “re-presents” that very same single sacrifice every time we celebrate Mass.
For those “poor” Jewish souls, however, who don’t have or can’t afford a member ship to a synagogue, when Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur – the most important holidays of the year (with the exception of Shabbat) – come around each year, the Jewish community leaves them out in the cold with nowhere to pray. And each year, I am amazed, appalled and angered by this fact.
The other group that differed in this stance of appointment was outraged, the Shiites. They believed that the torch should have been handed down by blood to someone in Muhammad’s family and today, their heritage can be traced back to Muhammad’s daughter, Fatima. Thus, the schism of sects occurred. The Sunnis believed in capability and the Shiites believed in blood when handing down political power and is still used today in Muslim nations.
There are several different types of exotic shofars available today as well like ones which are made from the horns of antelopes, onyx, eland, gemsbok etc. if you want the classic shofar go for the traditional one.

By the time we threw an entire loaf my parents and sisters were all crying in each other’s arms. We walked back in silence. In my thoughts were imagining a ram’s horn and ultimate repentance to G-d for obeying. Though I don’t wonder when my ram will show up in a thicket, I am thankful for all of the times that a ram has helped me go on with my life in peace.
