CBN Celebrates Jewish New Year

Ad Feedback

Monday night at sundown, the blowing of the shofar, or ram's horn, signaled the start of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year.

CBN's celebration included a time of worship led by messianic artist, Paul Wilbur.

Since1977, it's been an annual tradition here at CBN to observe Rosh Hashanah with a bonfire.

The fire symbolizes the work of the Holy Spirit, which we want to burn in us, to cleanse us in this new year and to prepare us for his return.

"This is the beginning of the year, and I think it's appropriate, in this time of economic turmoil, world turmoil, worlds in war, and contemplation of war, that we gather today and honor Israel, and honor God, because this is the beginning of the, 'Days of Awe,'" Gordon Robertson said.

"So, here we do something. We call it '7 Days Ablaze,' because this is a time when we acknowledge the Lord. A time right now, for Jewish people, a time of repentence," Pat Robertson added. "Ten days of seeking the Lord and asking for his cleansing and forgiveness and we start tonight. And each day we'll meet out here to pray and cry out to God and ask him to cleanse us and prepare us for what's coming."
