The Teacher and the Preacher
Rosh Hashanah

Episode Summary

This week, Dave and Harold get to talk about the great season that we are in at the moment. Most Christians are not really connected to the Jewish calendar, but this program is a good way to connect Christians with Judaism, which is the early root of our own faith. The early church for sure observed these feasts and festivals, and they are still be celebrated today. These celebrations are supposed to be a “lasting ordinance.” For the Christian who is tuned in today, we get a chance to go back and revisit our roots. For the Jewish listener who is tuned in today, we get a chance to underscore and embrace this very special day of this time of the season.

Dave and Harold are going to talk about the holiday of Rosh Hashanah, which is the second holiest day on the Jewish calendar. It is in the Torah, in the Bible. More specifically this week, after the Teacher and the Preacher discuss what Rosh Hashannah is, they will discuss Psalm 27 and how that connects to the holiday.

About the Teacher and The Preacher

The Teacher and the Preacher is a weekly radio program–hosted by Dave McGarrah, Senior Pastor at Deer Flat Church in Caldwell, Idaho, and Harold Berman of Efrat, Israel–that airs each Sunday at 10:30 am and 7:30 pm here on 94.1 The Voice KBXL and also on Sunday evenings at 5 pm on our sister station 790 KSPD. We are a unique phenomenon on the airwaves – a Christian and a Jew in ongoing dialogue – celebrating our many commonalities but never shying away from the differences. We offer our listeners insights into each other’s faiths that don’t come up much elsewhere, that can only come through sincere conversation. Our weekly discussion is more than a program about a topic. It’s a demonstration of how God can bring two people two people together from 9,000 miles away to bridge the differences, learn from each other, and strengthen our own faiths.
