Main article: Rosh Hashanah
Rosh Hashanah is also celebrated by a number of Christian denominations and unincorporated house church groups within the United States, including: Assemblies of Yahweh, Messianic Jews, some congregations of the Church of God (Seventh Day), some evangelical Protestant churches (mainly Baptist), as well as Seventh Day Pentecostals in Eastern Europe. This day of resounding is also known in Judaism by the name “Yom Teruah” and in Christianity as the Feast of Trumpets.
Gentile Christian and Messianic Jewish believers connect hearing “the sound of the trumpet” or shofar, according to the First Epistle to the Thessalonians and the Book of Revelation, with the events that occur at the Resurrection of the dead (“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud cry of summons, with the shout of an archangel, and with the blast of the trumpet of God. And those who have departed this life in Christ will rise first.”1Thess 4:16, Revelation 1:10).
Some say this “pivotal event of all human history to which the Feast of Trumpets points is the Return of Christ”. Some evangelical television channels call Rosh Hashanna eve the “Feast of Trumpets”, for example at CBN TV that marks the Jewish New Year with a staff gathering for Rosh Hashanah.
