Trumpets, Feast of. This feast—described in Numbers 29:1-6; Leviticus 23:24—was the New Year's day of the civil year, coming on the first of Tisri (October), and was further called by the rabbins "the birthday of the world," because in Tisri the late fruits were gathered and seed was sown. It was one of the seven days of holy convocation. The feast differed from the other feasts of new moon, which also had their trumpet-blowings over the burnt-offerings, by its being a day of rest and service.
