Rosh Hashanah: How The Seventh Month, And Not The First – Is The New Year

Rosh Hashanah: How The Seventh Month, And Not The First – Is The New Year.

The aim of this explanation is to share how Rosh Hashanah (The Feast of Trumpets – ref. Leviticus 23:24), which takes place on the first day of the seventh month (Tishrei) on the Hebrew calandar, is actually the beginning of the new year – despite Nisan (Abib) being described as the beginning of the year in Exodus 12:2.

The contextual explanation for Nisan being that Nisan it is the first of months from the beginning of your exodus.
