Jewish tradition says a new month begins after two witnesses see the crescent new moon, testify before the Sanhedrin who declare the beginning of the new month. Messengers set beacon fires on hills throughout Israel. This happens about a day after the astronomical no moon. But Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of a new month and new civil year. Distant communities celebrate Trumpets on two possible days. The shofar sounds one hundred times during the Jewish service. Yom Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets is the Rapture day.
