✶Day of Atonement_Yom Kippur (יוֹם כִּפּוּר) ☩ Astesryo Qen (አስተስርዮ ቀን)✶

Greetings in the name of His & Her Imperial Majesties Qedamawi Haile Sellassie I & Itege Menen Asfaw,

Greetings, yet again to one and all, from “Lidj Yefdi” (pronounced Lij; Yêf-dee).

Ras Tafari Renaissance Revelations wishes that all have had a peaceful, Yom Kippur.  The Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year on the Hebraic/Jewish calendar.

Yom-Kippur

Jewish people traditionally observe this holy day with a 25-hour period of fasting, and intensive prayer, where many usually spend most of the day in synagogue services. Yom Kippur(or the “Day of Atonement”) completes the annual period known in Judaism as the High Holy Days(or the “Days of Awe”-Yamim Noraim-ימים נוראים‎).

Some scholars, and others say there is a link to Kapporet, the “mercy seat” or covering of the Ark of the Covenant.

yom-kippur (Kapperet_Ark-of-the-Covenant)

During the Days of Awe, a Jewish/Hebrew person tries to amend his or her behavior and seek forgiveness for wrongs done against God and against other human beings.

As one of the most culturally significant in Hebrew holidays, Yom Kippur is known and observed as a memorial by Hebrews, Jewish people,Israelites, & many others the like across cultural heritages.

Coming from Ethiopic Hebraic perspective, Yom Kippur or the “Day of Atonement,” is known as Astesryo Q’en/ Seryet Q’en – አስተስርዮ ቀን/ ሰርየት ቀን.

As the holiest day of the year, the “Day of Atonement,” one of the main reasons for the season is repentance.  Repentance, leading toward choosing to live as a Ts’addikim– צדיקים, or “one of the righteous“. On the flipside, one could choose to become or continue in the ways of the Reshai’im-רשעים, or the “wicked.”

This choice is to made, because the Ts’addikim will be written into the Sefer HaChayim-ספר החיים, or the “Book of Life,” & the Rashai’im to the “Book of Death.”

RRR is proud to have been here studying, giving commentary, and sharing in the fellowship of Ras Tafari.  It has been thoroughly enjoyable, & fulfilling to see the responses from all of the people from all walks of life, seeking truth, wherever it may be found when pertaining to the Scriptures, (in the light of Ras Tafari), as well as, other topics and subjects.

We are coming up to OUR Hebrew-Lunar cycle of time-keeping and will continue our Torah for the Hebraic year, which has been brought to year 5779 H.C. (Sept.10-20, 2018)

But, in OUR Ethiopic-Solar New Year 2011/7511 E.C. (Sept. 11, 2018)

Though, the year has had its times of trials and times of joy, & some seem to outweigh the other, we all have come though another year, in hopes of seeing many more. (RRR wishes peace, and prosperity to you all!)

Going forward, RRR, will continue its attempt to expand in reach, aggregation of intel, and building beneficial relationships …There has begun a process for bringing forward hard copies of this past year’s Sabbath readings with RRR commentary, & availability with be provided for all of those who, wish seek to retain a copies.

(A preliminary exclusive previous compilation has been completed & is also available, here for those who so inquire; link below) also… more pertinent works on this past year and its significance within the Hebrew pattern and paradigm at the present moment.

We thank ALL of the Supporters and visitors to this platforms as well as, other we participate in.  Those who may have spread the word whenever a post was made hear at RRR, or heard whenever I, and many of my confidants were hard at work collaborating in many projects; I also thank you very much!  We look forward to seeing what will inspire you to do something meaningful, in the near and far future.  For all of this we give thanks to none other but the MOST HIGH! & for bringing you and yours safely to yet another year.

Please stay tuned, to these blog posts, because there’s is so much more to come…

So, in ushering in Hebrew Observances, that should be relevant and incorporated into the Ras Tafari consciousness.

Since the inception of Ras Tafari it has been clear that the Ras Tafarians proclaim ancestral heritage with Hebraic peoples of antiquity.  Sharing ancestry with the Imperial House of David’s Solomonic Dynasty, in Ethiopia; by way of King Solomon & the Queen of Sheba.  With that said, seeing how Ethiopia has become the ONLY Christian church upholding its Hebraic traditions intact, it should hold a critical place in the Ras Tafari faithful and those of like minds to adhere to original Christian and Hebraic practices.

So, in this post we here at Ras Tafari Renaissance would like to put, all that continue to, and are maybe, just checking out the site for the first time on notice.  In the continuance of bringing you all, Ras Tafari interpretations of the Scriptures from a Bible-based foundation, we’ll also bring about the basics of over-standing Hebraic Observances/Holidays/Holy Days, and build on that foundation.

As the year comes to a close from ancient ways of time-keeping to the more modern ways, Ras Tafari Renaissance comes to the Hebraic New Year, with the anticipation of bringing the blog viewers into a deeper understanding of what is being produced here on this site.  Bringing more of the Hebrew and Amharic languages, into comprehension and use.

Cḥag Sameácḥ, LeShánna Tobáh!!!
Ras Tafari Renaissance sends season greetings to one and all!  On this post, the subject which we intend to cover is centered on ushering in the Hebrew Observance of Rōsh HaShánna ראש השנה.

Rosh HaShanna - Rosh Chodesh - [Tishrei 1]

Rosh HaShanna (Hebraically), is the celebration/commemoration of the conclusion to the Hebraic year – .  This commemoration also is comparable to the “Seven days of Creation” [Gen. 2-3]  These along with so many other important nuances should be relevant and incorporated into the Ras Tafari consciousness.

– etymological definitions of Rosh

Since the inception of Ras Tafari it has been clear that the Ras Tafarians proclaim ancestral heritage with Hebraic peoples of antiquity.  Sharing ancestry with the Imperial House of David’s, Solomonic Dynasty, in Ethiopia; by way of King Solomon & the Queen of Sheba.  With that said, we recognize how gracious YHWH is, in knowing the history of Ethiopia before its Hebraic and later Christian conversions.  Ethiopia which has always had a Solar calculation in yearly counting (or Calendar count) and the Hebraic Calendar following a Lunar calculation, its clear that a wholisitc perspective is needed to under-, inner- and over-stand in entirety the teachings of the Israelites(the Hebrews).

luni-solar year calculating

Now, seeing how Ethiopia has become the ONLY Christian church upholding its Hebraic traditions intact, it should hold a critical place in the Ras Tafari faithful and those like minds to adhere to original Christian and Hebraic practices.  Rosh Hashanah is observed on the first two days of the Hebrew month of Tishrei-תִּשְׁרֵי, the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar. It is also described in the Torah as

(Yōm Terū’ahיום תרועה, “a day of sounding [the Shofar-Trumpet]”).

Ras Tafari Renaissance would like to put, all that continue to, and are maybe, just checking out the site for the first time on notice.  In the continuance of bringing you all, Ras Tafari interpretations of the Scriptures from a Bible-based foundation, we’ll also bring about the basics of over-standing Hebraic Observances/Holidays/Holy Days, and build on that foundation.

Hebrew Months (in order)

So coming into the evening, we Ethiopian Hebrews and Hebrew minded peoples will bring in the new month of Tishrei, as it was taught to the children of Israel from the Scriptures.

(see also; Zikron Teruah, Blowing of the Shofar )

http://torahtothetribes.com/2012/08/yom-terurah-the-feast-of-trumpets/

http://www.judaica-guide.com/shofar/

[Lev. 23: 24]

rosh hashanna

“…the seventh month, the first day of the month, ye shall have a sabbath, a memorial, of blowing of trumpets(shofar), an holy convocation…”  & as

[Numbers 29:1]

says, the festival/memorial will be Yom Teruah-יום תרועה , (“Blowing of the Horn“)

The New Moon, is also significant to this commemoration and others alike (ie. the beginning of the Hebrew months).  Paying attention to the anatomy of the wombman(woman), from a Ras Tafari Ethiopian Hebrew perspective, we find that there is much knowledge and wisdom to be gained in the grace of the Father.  Seeing, as how the continuance of the cycles of the Moon’s phases, are congruent to the menstruation in the body of the woman; new doors of concentrated consciousness should be expounded upon.  Torah, being the schoolmaster [Gal. 3:24] of the Hebrews/Israelites, the Lunar cycles in concordance with the Hebraic months pins a central theme to the wisdom of the children of Israel.

Menstrual_Cycle_bottom

For instance, during a time like this in observance of the season of Teshu(v)bah [Time of Repentance] the women of modern Jewish/Hebrew sects are forbidden from working around the house for as in the usual work done of a housewife.  Some see this as a very chauvinistic, but in Scripture reference, the assurance of the rest and rejuvenation of the wombman, in the Hebraic perspective gives an extremely different outlook on the realism of the teachings of the TorahOld Testament.
