Feast Of Trumpets
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying,
In the seventh month, in the first day of the month,
shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets,
an holy convocation.
The shofar was used for many purposes such as:
- To summon Moses to the top of the mountain to receive the Commandments (Exodus19:19-20).
- To give a signal during time of war (Judges 3:27).
- To proclaim the start of the Jubilee year (Lev. 25:9).
- To anoint a new king during coronation service (1 Kings 1:34).
- To regather the outcasts of Israel (Isa. 27:13).
- To warn the people of danger (Amos 3:6).
- To declare the arrival of the Messiah (Zech. 9:14).
Shofar sounding the Tekiah: the “blast,” one long blast with a clear tone.
Shofar sounding the Shevarim: a “broken,” sighing sound of three short calls.
The Teruah: the “alarm,” a rapid series of nine or more very short notes.
The Tekiah Gedolah: “the great Tekiah,” a single unbroken blast, held as long as possible.
A combination of Tekiah, Shevarim, Teruah, ending with a Tekiah Gedolah.
