The biblical holiday known as PURIM will be celebrated on March 21 and 22, 2019. This holiday commemorates the amazing story in the book of Esther. It’s a reminder of a period in history when the Jewish people (in the Persian Empire) were almost wiped out. The evil Haman plotted to have every Jew murdered in the kingdom. Queen Esther and Mordechai come to the rescue and the Jewish people are victorious over this evil plot. God’s providence, provision and favor are remembered during this holiday. There are also prophetic implications. See PURIM blog for more information.
On January 21, 2019 it will be Tu B’Shevat. This is not a major holiday on the biblical/Hebrew calendar. It is considered more of a minor holiday. It always occurs on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat. On the Gregorian calendar, Shevat occurs in January/February, depending on the year. Though Tu B’Shevat is a minor holiday, it has some interesting traditions and history. Last year, a super moon and total lunar eclipse (blood moon) occurred on Tu B’Shevat. This year, the same thing will happen! There will be a total lunar eclipse, and it is also a super moon! So, that will make two years in a row. The eclipse/super moon will be visible from the United States. States up north may not have as good of a view because of snowy weather/snowstorms. I will be posting a blog on this shortly so you can have more information about this holiday.
See link below for times and more info on the eclipse:

The High Holy Days have already passed- see dates below
The month of Elul began at sundown on August 12, 2018. The month of Elul is a month of repentance on God’s calendar (the Hebrew calendar). It is time to look inside ourselves and see if there are any sins hindering our lives. We are to take these sins to Jesus, and let him bring healing. Elul is a time when we listen to the blast of the shofar (trumpet). The Holy Spirit will alert us to sins that are hurting our walk with Jesus, as well as hurting others. The Holy Spirit is the trumpet that wakes us up! During Elul, God is in the field, waiting for us to come to him. After Elul is over, it will be Rosh Hashanah, or the Feast of Trumpets.
