Greetings of Ramadan and Tishrei

Ramadan Mubarak and Shanah tovah to all!

This year, once again we have the co-incidence of two very sacred month from two great faith. One is the month of Ramadan (on Muslim calendar) and another is the month of Tishrei (on Jewish calendar). Velveteen Rabbi writes in her blog, "it's neat that this year we'll be walking the path through the Days of Awe, and Sukkot, and Shmini Atzeret, and Simchat Torah, while our Muslim cousins are making their way through Ramadan."

Islam and Judaism share the common source from the great Abrahamic tradition. Judaism, Christianity and Islam are three faith of the same Abrahamic family, coming from three different time-frame. Tent of Abraham, Hagar and Sarah blog beautifully explained both the meanings of Ramadan and Tisheri - two sacred months from two sharing faith.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic Lunar calendar and the holiest of the four holy months. (Fasting) It is one of the five pillars of Islamic faith. During Ramadan all physically mature and healthy Muslims are required to abstain from all food, drink, gum chewing, any kind of tobacco use, and any kind of sexual contact between dawn and sunset for 29 or 30 days, depending on the sighting of the moon during this month. Moreover, fasting includes refraining from gossiping, lying, slandering and all traits of bad character. It calls for doing good deeds, generosity and kindness, self-reflection, praying and God-consciousness. (continues)
On the new moon of Tishrei, its first festival, Rosh Hashanah, has become known as the Jewish New Year. Since it heads up this month-long sabbatical process of renewing our lives, it might be more deeply understood as the "renewal of the year." Jewish tradition sees it as the anniversary of the creation of the original human being, and this gives it a universalist cast.

Rosh Hashanah is also the first of what are called the "Ten Days of Awe" and "Ten Days of Tshuvah ["Turning" or "Repentance"] " that are carried out with intense self-examination, and a turning away from misdeeds toward renewal of a holy life-path. (continues)
