Rosh Hashanah is also the birthday of humanity.

The word Saturday comes from latin that stands for the planet Saturn’s Day, and was shortened to Saturday, not from shabath. The Spanish borrowed the Hebrew word for this day of the week in their language.

I love the Jews too and I believe God did not forget His people. Thank God for Jesus who is also a Jew lol! God bless Israel and peace to them all.

I’m a Gentile and I send a Chanukah card to my close Jewish friend every year. Are there other Jewish holidays for which a non-Jewish person may send cards to one’s Jewish friends without offending?

Good question. The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah is a beautiful time to send a card to a Jewish person. Here is some more information about this holiday:

I wanted to send Holiday Cards out and a few of my friends are Jewish. I went on a site that showed Chanukkah (I believe is around Christmas) but other sites show it as Hanukkah. Which is correct, I wrote Happy Chanukkah

Hanukkah is actually a transliteration of the Hebrew word, so technically there is no “right” answer!

I have been studying Torah and following the festivals, since 2005. Although I do not attempt to join the Orthodox or Conservative, their Synagogue’s, I have enjoyed to pursue my Lineage, which is Jewish on my Mother’s side, and Cherokee, on my Grandfather’s side. The Nation of Israel deserves their privacy in worship and celebration. To all I say… Shalom.

As a Christian it is necessary to learn about the Jewish laws and holidays to understand the Bible. Christ was a Jew and kept the laws and holidays. I’ve discovered that I have misinterpreted so much from not understanding the Jewish people, their laws, history and holidays. And by trying to understand the history of the Jewish people I’m honoring my mother who dearly loved and respected the Jews. She would give to the IFCJ’s On the Wings of Eagles each year so that a Jew could return to Israel. Her belief and she passed it on to her children is that the Jews are G_ds chosen people and will never be defeated again. I carry on her tradition of On the Wings of Eagles in remembrance of her life and Christian faith..
