New Moon Feast

Join us in ushering in Rosh Chodesh with a new Moon feast and a blowing of the shofar!

The Torah tells us in Bamidbar (Numbers) 10:10,

In the day of your gladness and in your appointed feasts, and on the first days of your months, you shall blow the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; and they shall be as a reminder of you before your God. I am the Lord your God.”

David also tells us in Psalm 81:3,

Blow the trumpet at the new moon,
and at the full moon, on our feast day.

Speaking of the Messianic age Isaiah 66:23 prophecies,

From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come to worship before Me,” says YHVH

A blessing praising God for the new moon, recited outdoors while gazing at the waxing moon at the beginning of the month is as follows,

“Praised are you, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, who created (bara’) the skies with his word, and all heaven’s host with the breath of His mouth. He gave them appointed times and roles, and they never miss their cues, doing their Creator’s (konam) bidding with gladness and joy. He is the true Creator (po’el) who acts faithfully, and He has told the moon to renew itself. It is a beautiful crown for the people carried by God from birth (Israel), who will likewise be renewed in the future in order to proclaim the beauty of their Creator (yotsram) for His glorious majesty. Praised are You, O Lord, who renews new moons.”

Just remember, it is not the moon that is blessed or sanctified in birkat hachodesh or birkat halevanah, but God who is praised for renewing the moon!

To learn more about how to calculate the new moon read our study here.

They are to stand every morning to thank and to praise the Lord, and likewise at evening, and to offer all burnt offerings to the Lord, on the sabbaths, the new moons and the fixed festivals in the number set by the ordinance concerning them, continually before the Lord.”

1 Chronicles 23:30-31

NEW MOON DAY COMMENCES AT THE DAWN AFTER CONJUNCTION

The moon begins to illuminate immediately after conjunction. We cannot see it, though, until the sun sets because the moon is obscured by the greater light of the sun. The fact that we cannot see the moon immediately after conjunction, however, does not negate the fact that it has already began a new revolution with new illumination. Often, the first visible crescent will be seen on the evening of New Moon Day, displaying her new light to the viewer. (Note: Remember that Days observance begin evening before).

    • Work is permissible on a New Moon Feast as long as it does not fall on a weekly Sabbath or Holy Day. We observe the new moon with the blowing of the shofar, a feast and a blessing praising God for the new moon, recited outdoors while gazing at the waxing moon at the beginning of the month…

      “Praised are you, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, who created (bara’) the skies with his word, and all heaven’s host with the breath of his mouth. He gave them appointed times and roles, and they never miss their cues, doing their Creator’s (konam) bidding with gladness and joy. He is the true creator (po’el) who acts faithfully, and he has told the moon to renew itself. It is a beautiful crown for the people carried by God from birth (Israel), who will likewise be renewed in the future in order to proclaim the beauty of their creator (yotsram) for his glorious majesty. Praised are you, O Lord, who renews new moons.”

      Hope this helps!

      • Thank you my beloved brother for this very insightful information I was not aware of, I am more encouraged because of your teachings and am renewed in spirit. You are truly a blessing from HaShem. Amin. 🙂 I listen to your teachings almost every day at work. Praise the Lord.!
