Is Rosh Hashanah a Biblical Holiday?
WHY we should we observe "Rosh Hashanah" - is it scriptural? The term isn't explicitly mentioned in the Scriptures; is the whole idea of the Jewish "Civil New Year" just a rabbinical invention?
Many Christian terms don't appear in Scriptures such as: "Trinity," "Church," "Bible," "Advent," "Rapture," "Easter," and "Christmas."
However the Old Testament aka Torah explicitly states that the start of the 7th month (i.e., Tishri 1) is to be consecrated as a day of rest marked with shofar blowing (Lev. 23:24-25, Num. 29:1-2). In Jewish tradition the sages of the Torah universally regard the number 7 as the number of completeness. Since each new moon (rosh chodesh) is regarded as a sacred time (Num. 10:10), therefore the seventh new moon (counting from Nisan in the spring) should acquire added sanctity and is justified because God directly commanded Israel to sanctify the seventh month as a solemn day of "remembrance and shofar blowing" (זִכְרוֹן תְּרוּעָה).

7-8-21-21, Israel has only 8000 square miles of land - the Muslims have 5 million. Yet, they also want the Jews land. Of all the nations of the world, the Lord chose the descendants of Jacob [Jews], not Ishmael [Muslims], to be His covenant people - the descendants of Abraham and wife Sarah. (Genesis 17:19-21; Malachi 1:1–5).
