Yom Teruah is the more Biblical name for the Feast of Trumpets. The rehearsal or divine appointment is known in Jewish circles as Rosh Hashanah. The Hebrew word Teruah comes with some very rich and inspiring connections. In this video we look into the etymology, the meaning, and the message packed away in the word Teruah. The word in Hebrew does not mean trumpet. We go on to discern its character and message, not only in the call to remembrance in the blowing of the shofar blast but also in the element of alarm in the Teruah, the shout of exaltation, (like the shout that brought the walls of Jericho down). The Teruah is in the exaltation of God in the dramatic clashing of cymbals. The Teruah is also to be found in what the Scriptures declare to be "the joyful sound".
