"Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'In the seventh month on the first of the month you shall have a rest, a reminder by blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.'" Leviticus 23:24

Dear Family and Friends,

Wow, it's only TWO WEEKS to Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets) aka Rosh Hashanna! Where has the summer gone?

If you are like me, you probably feel like this summer has been stolen away by heat and smoke. The time we had intended to spend relaxing sitting at the lake has instead been spent sitting behind closed doors and windows with fans and filters keeping the heat and smoke at bay. Honestly, I am really looking forward to fall, with its cooler temperatures and hopefully much cleaner air! I am also looking forward to saying goodbye to last year, with all its heartaches and welcoming the new year 5779 = תשע״ט a year to SEE (ע) both GOOD and EVIL (ת) – but more on that at our Rosh Hashanna gathering!

As we anticipate the fall with all its changes, we recognize that change is a natural process. I have heard it said that “the only constant in life is change.” And more and more I believe that to be true. This fall, as we head into the Festival Season (see enclosed flier), we are anticipating more change here at Sabbath Streams as well.

We have been blessed by the ministry of Moshe Zilverberg as he has been with our fellowship for a season, and are sad to see him go, but we understand the need for the ministry that has been put on his heart. This fall, he is branching out to establish something new, Sheirut Shuvu LaTorah, a Messianic Synagogue in Klamath Falls. For those who prefer more of the liturgy and for those who have been looking for a minion of men to pray with, this will help to meet that need.

We at Sabbath Streams will continue doing what we have been doing. We will celebrate the festivals, and each Rosh Chodesh on the Shabbat preceding the new month. And on Shabbat, we will continue our Worship and Word services with music and dance and the reading and study of the Torah Portions.

We invite you to come and participate with us, or if the Synagogue style is more what you are looking for, check out what Moshe is doing (www.shuvulatorah.com). But participate somewhere! Just as Summer is almost over and we see the signs of fall and the soon coming winter, this age is almost over. We see signs everywhere of our soon coming KING!! As the trumpets will soon sound, announcing the new year of the earthly kings, the trumpet from heaven will soon sound announcing the coming King of Kings. Watch the festivals, see the pictures of our Messiah – make your hearts ready! He is coming soon.
