Happy New Moon!!! Rosh Chodesh & Chag Same’ach


The new moon of the 6th month has been sighted in Israel, and even tho, the cloud cover here is really too great for us to spot it, I want to take a moment to celebrate, Wish you all a Happy Festival and New Month, blow the shofar and welcome this 6th month on the Creator’s Calendar in!

The new moon on August 19, 2012 sighted from Kfar Eldad at 7:40pm.

The above shofar blast doesn’t have much of a photo to it, as I just sat my android on the porch rail… But here’s what the view looked like at the time 🙂

In honor of the Sighting of the New Moon of the 6th month, and the beginning of the 40 days of Repentance; looking forward to the Next New Moon, which will begin the Feast of Trumpets – I offer this blog “Potatoes & the Moon”, written last year, but still just as applicable to today! Enjoy!!! :D”


One more picture of tonight’s sunset.

A friend just shared this article, from a Jewish Sister, on the beauty & depth contained just in the name of this month!! Beautiful, and such a lovely connection to Repentance as we begin the 40 days of Repentance!


Take time to read it!!   :Heart:


About Beloved of YHWH

I am the “Head of Domestic Affairs” here on the mountain top. What that means is, I’m a stay-at home mom of 2 Boys, Small business owner, gardener, homemaker, blogger, planner, mediator, nurse, and so much more. My life took an unexpected and painful turn a couple of years ago, which is how I came to name my blog Shakam Boqer, but YHVH has been incredibly faithful to me, the boys and I are healing, and I am full of hope. I’m a follower of Yeshua, and my faith is an integral part of my life. Part of how He created me to reflect Him is to be a teller of the Story. I share my story, not as an exhibitionist, not for the attention it might receive, not for accolades or recognition, but, for His Glory – so that others, as they read, as they see how YHVH has led and loved me over the course of time, can be edified, lifted up, encouraged to Look to HIM, to Trust Him, to pursue Holy Wholeness with every fiber of their beings. Within this blog, I want community and conversation and interaction. I want to offer hope, and joy, and also thought provoking bits that make one look deeper into the heart of Elohim. This is my place to share my thoughts, wrestlings and just daily life. Please, please feel free to comment, discuss and even dissect & respectfully disagree. Be sure you check out Welcome & Disclaimers to get a general idea of the Blog, and what I am about: http://wp.me/p1Tc3u-1 Feel free to contact me directly at: abigailmistyd at gmail dot com. Some blogs are password protected as I don't want pictures of my children pulled from my blog in a "image search" and posted elsewhere on the web. If I know you in person, or we have interacted online, and you'd like to read them, shoot me a note, tell me how I know you, and ask for the password. :)
