Shalom Friends and Visitors!
The sighting of this new moon marks the beginning of the Bible 7th month Ethanim in which month we are being commanded
to observe the Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement and Feast of Tabernacles as stipulated in the book of Leviticus chapter
23. The new moon, 1st day of this Bible 7th month Ethanim is the only new moon day in the year the Bible declare is a holy
Sabbath day in praise and worship to our Creator. This new moon day of the 7th month Ethanim the Bible declares is The Feast
of Trumpets or the day of the blowing of Trumpets.
I did not sight this 7th new moon of the year inspite of a much careful and deligent search on Friday evening 26th
September 2003 here in Roseau, Dominica.
However, I received confirmation from a faithful believing friend in U.S.A. that he received confirmation from two native
believing friends that they had sighted the Ethanim new moon. This is his report to me:
Yom Teruah, I received a late report that the new moon was sighted in Omaha, Nebraska by Gary and Stacy Mansager
Friday night 26 Sept. 2003. I called Gary and spoke with him about the sighting. These are two people that I know personally
and trust in their abilities concerning new moon sightings. No other reports have been received by me for Friday night. Good
Shabbat and Trumpets!
Sorry I could not get this out to you sooner.
Friday, September 26th, 2003.
Then I received yet a second communication from within U.S.A. and this time from a next faithful new moon
spotter and here is what he reports:
Brother Gary Mansager reported that his wife Stacey and he saw the new moon tonight in Omaha, Nebraska. Sister
Karen in Headland, Alabama reported seeing the new moon tonight.
Praise Yahweh the Memorial of trumpets is here! The sound of Teruah is part of the command for Yom Teruah.
