Yom Teruah

For 2016, Yom Teruah is now!  From sundown October 2 to sundown October 4.  For an interesting article on Yom Teruah and Rosh Hoshana, see:

The above article states that Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur is not the start of a new year.  It also states that Yom Kippur is merely the blowing of trumpets to call attention to the start of the fifteith year six months later.  The NASB states:

You are also to count off seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years, so that you have the time of the seven sabbaths of years, namely, forty-nine years.  You shall then sound a ram’s horn abroad on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the day of atonement you shall sound a horn all through your land.  You shall thus consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim a release through the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you, and each of you shall return to his own property, and each of you shall return to his family.  You shall have the fiftieth year as a jubilee; you shall not sow, nor reap its aftergrowth, nor gather in from its untrimmed vines.  For it is a jubilee; it shall be holy to you. You shall eat its crops out of the field.”  Leviticus 25:8-12
