Yom Teruah 2014 International Messianic Convention

(Rochester, NY)- Hundreds of Christians celebrating the biblical feasts of the Old Testament are coming to the Rochester Riverside Convention Center, Sept. 26-28, for the "Feast of Trumpets" (aka Yom Teruah in Hebrew).

"Prepare for the largest Yom Teruah event since the Israelites crossed the Red Sea!" - Michael Rood, event host.

The group chose Rochester because of the demographics of partners in the North East area and Canada. Over 600 families, ministers, and teachers will be in attendance.

Yom Teruah means "day of trumpet blowing" in Hebrew. This event commemorates the day that God shouted down the 10 commandments to the Israelites after their miraculous escape from slavery in Egypt and the subsequent miracle of the parting of the Red Sea. To the feast-observing Christians (a.k.a. Messianic believers) who celebrate it, the Feast of Trumpets also serves as a prophecy that points to Jesus' second coming, accompanied by "trumpets" and "bowls of wrath" as outlined in the New Testament book of Revelation.

All events are open to the public. Registration at the door for a donation of any amount. Some parts of the conference (lunch on Saturday, mixer event on Friday night) may not be available to walk-ins due to pre-arranged food orders for those who pre-registered.
