The Jubilee Year has officially ended… or has it?
I received this about a month ago from a Jewish scholar:
The Yuval (Jubilee) ends on Yom ha Kippur (Day of Atonement), which is on October 11th at sundown, not on October 2nd, which is Rosh Hashanah. The Shemitah always ends on Yom ha Teruah (Day of Trumpets), Yom ha Din (Day of Judgement) and Rosh Hashanah (Head Year), which are all on the same day, but not the Jubilee. It ends ten days later after the ten days of awe.
I reported it to TDV subscribers, but haven’t mentioned it in public, mostly because there were so many massive events occurring this last weekend that a discussion of alternative dates seemed besides the point. But I do want to mention it.
