Shofars, Yehuda Glick, the year of creation, and religious end-time politics

Promotional poster from


In its newsletter today, the Temple Institute had the following:

Elul 22, 5783/September 8, 2023 …

We are swiftly approaching Rosh HaShana, the Day of the Sounding of the Shofar, … Yom HaTerua – the Day of the (shofar) Blast – is what Rosh HaShana is referred to in the Torah. Sounding and hearing the shofar was the single essential commandment in the days of the Holy Temple, just as it is today. …

Every morning during the month of Elul, shofarot (rams horns) are heard all throughout the land of Israel and in Jewish communities around the world. The sounding of the shofar each morning is in anticipation of the upcoming High Holidays of Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur.

Related to blowing a shofar, Israel365News reported the following:

September 8, 2023

Rabbi Yehuda Glick will be manifesting the prophecy of Joel on Sunday when he blows a shofar on the Mount of Olives to celebrate 5,784 years of creation.

“In accordance with Jewish tradition, we observe the span of six days bridging from the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Elul to the onset of Tishrei’s first day, a period reverently honoring the six days of creation,” Rabbi Glick explained. “The inaugural day of Tishrei, also known as the seventh month, is named “YOM TERUAH” in the Torah—an occasion dedicated to resounding acclamations in honor of The King, the originator of our world, none other than Hashem, the Almighty God.” …

“Esteemed by our Sages as Rosh Hashana, this day is consecrated by the resonant echoes of the Shofar, symbolizing the proclamation of His Sovereignty, a momentous coronation,” Rabbi Glick said. …

“Regrettably, due to political restrictions, the Israeli authorities do not permit the sounding of the Shofar upon the sacred grounds of Zion, the Temple Mount,” Rabbi Glick said. “Consequently, we shall resound the Shofar atop the Mount of Olives, with Zion in our sight, as we reverently acknowledge the hallowed Foundation Stone, thereby bestowing a regal coronation upon the Creator.”

Last year at this time, Rabbi Glick was detained by police on the Temple Mount for playing the sound of a shofar on his cell phone as a symbolic representation of  the Jewish custom to blow the shofar after morning prayer in the current month of Elul in order to wake the heart to repentance.  Over the course of the next few weeks, Rabbi Glick was detained several times by the Israeli police for blowing the shofar at a site adjacent to the Temple Mount.

Two weeks ago, a group of advocates including rabbis and a farmer Knesset member has submitted an official request to  Itamar Ben-Gvir, Israel’s Minister of National Security, asking for permission to blow the shofar on the Temple Mount on the holiday of Rosh Hashanah. There has been no response from the government.

“Join us, and bring your Shofar!” Rabbi Glick said, urging the public to join him in the special event.

Yehuda Glick is associated with the site who is promoting this as the poster at the beginning of this post shows.

Before going further, let me state that the year of creation was NOT 5784 years ago as many Jews claim–their scholars know that is off –for details, check out the article: Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?  (More on the age of the earth can be found in the article How Old is the Earth and How Long Were the Days of Creation? Gap Theory?)

That said, here is some of what Wikipedia has related to Yehuda Glick:

Yehudah Joshua Glick (Hebrew: יְהוּדָה יְהוֹשֻׁעַ גְלִיק; born 20 November 1965), alternatively spelled “Yehuda Glick”, is an American-born Israeli Orthodox rabbi, activist, and politician. As the President of Shalom Jerusalem Foundation,[1] he campaigns for expanding Jewish access to the Temple Mount.[2][3] He was a member of the Knesset for Likud, having taken the place of former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon in May 2016 until April 2019.

Glick is the leader of HaLiba, a coalition of groups dedicated to “reaching complete and comprehensive freedom and civil rights for Jews on the Temple Mount”.[4]

Glick was awarded the 2015 Moskowitz Prize for Zionism for being “Active for human rights and religious freedom on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount”.[5][6]

Glick advocates opening the Temple Mount on an equal footing to prayer by Muslims, Jews, Christians, and others.[21][22][23][24][25] He has been called “a symbol of the struggle for Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount”.[26] And has been described as representing the recent shift in the demand for Jewish prayer to be permitted on the Temple Mount on an equal footing with Muslim prayer from the fringe to the mainstream of Israeli society.[21][27] Glick has spoken about his vision of a utopian Temple Mount. It would include a “House of prayer for all Nations”, with the Dome of the Rock standing alongside a rebuilt Jewish sacrificial altar.[28] On March 26, 2018, two sacrificial lambs were slaughtered by priests near the Temple Mount in a ceremony attended by the subject, senior National Religious rabbis Dov Lior, Yisrael Ariel, and hundreds of citizens.[29] Haaretz journalist Nir Hasson credits Glick as having put the Israeli left on the defensive by “uncover(ing) the absurdity created at the Temple Mount” by a status quo that, by permitting Muslim prayer, while prohibiting Jewish prayer, “discriminates against people because of their religion”.[30]

Glick has led groups of Jews to walk the Temple Mount, and has been repeatedly arrested while praying, walking, and filming videos on the Temple Mount.[31][32] (Yehudah Glick. Wikipedia, accessed 09/08/23)

Anyway, Yehuda Glick is politically active and is applying pressure on the government of Israel to push for an interfaith agenda and to allow various activities on the Temple Mount, including sacrifices.

The Temple Institute also wants sacrifices, and has four red heifers it is monitoring with the hope of sacrificing one of them to make way for daily sacrifices as well as a new temple. They originally had five.

Related to the arrival of those originally five red heifers, we put out the following short video:


The Temple Institute announced that “5 perfect, unblemished red heifers arrived in Israel from the USA” on September 15, 2022.. Chanan Kupietzky, an Orthodox Jewish teacher, pointed out that last year was 5781 in the Jewish calendar, pointing to the year these red heifers were conceived, 5782 is when they were to arrive in Israel, and that the year beginning sunset September 25, 2022 is supposedly 5783, which is supposed to be the year of red heifer redemption. Is that the correct year anno mundi (year of the earth) or is 5989 to 5992 more in line with history? What about the claimed Shemitah year? Might the appearance of a proper red heifer encourage the Sanhedrin to begin regular animal sacrifices? Might political considerations result in the resumption of animal sacrifices? Does the Bible show that animal sacrifices in Israel will be stopped? Does possibly having a red heifer mean that a massive Jewish temple is about to be rebuilt in Jerusalem? Do Christians need the sacrifice of Jesus or the blood of a red heifer to be purified? How close do we seem to be for Daniel 9:27b to be fulfilled?

Here is a link to our video: 5 Red Heifers and Year 5783?

But several months after they arrived, one of the red heifers was disqualified, so there are four remaining candidates.

Some believe, because of their age, that one red heifer could be sacrificed in 2024.

We put up the following related video:


Red Heifer Sacrifice Ready April 2024?

In September 2022, 5 seemingly unblemished red heifers were transported from Texas to Israel by Boneh Israel in conjunction with some Protestants. In March 2023, the Temple Institute declared one of the red heifers disqualified for sacrifice. What is a red heifer? Why are certain Jews so concerned about having one? What does the Bible teach about the ashes of red heifer? Is a red heifer needed for Christians? If animal sacrifices are not needed for Christians, does the Bible prophesy future animal sacrifices? If so, will the stopping of them have anything to do with the countdown for return of Jesus and the establishment of the Kingdom of God according to the Book of Daniel? Did Moriel Barelli of Boneh Israel say he hopes a red heifer will be available for sacrifice by Passover in 2024, which is April 22? Is the sacrifice of a red heifer, like the Temple Institute and Sanhedrin want, going to usher in the Antichrist? Is there any relationship between daily animal sacrifices and the King of the North Beast power? Does the “fate of the world” rely on a red heifer as the Temple Institute has stated? Will the Messiah sacrifice the ‘tenth red heifer’? If not, might the Jews do it anyway? Dr. Thiel and Steve Dupuie address these issues.

Here is a link to the video: Red Heifer Sacrifice Ready April 2024?

The cover of the July-September 2023 edition of the Bible News Prophecy magazine shows a red heifer:

Here is a link to the magazine online, which features an article on the red heifer matter: Bible News Prophecy July-September 2023 edition.

The Temple Institute has various implements, a high priest, as well as red heifer candidates to be able to start animal sacrifices. It may possibly sacrifice a red heifer in 2024 (watch 5 Red Heifers and Year 5783?).

Yet, some will say, “Isn’t a massive temple needed first, before sacrifices can be implemented?”


When I visited the Temple Institute in October 2013, I specifically asked a man who was part of hat organization t if they needed a temple in order to sacrifice. He said no, all they needed was permission from the government as well as an altar. And they already have an altar (watch Sanhedrin makes burnt offering to dedicate altar!).

As far as sacrifices go and what was needed, notice something that the Bible shows:

6 From the first day of the seventh month began they to offer burnt offerings unto the LORD. But the foundation of the temple of the LORD was not yet laid. (Ezra 3:6)

So, there was no temple, yet sacrifices were done.

What is needed now?

Government permission.

What is Yehuda Glick doing?

He is attempting to raise awareness in order to apply pressure to allow the Jews to have a greater presence on the area known as the Temple Mount as well as to allow the Jews to implement daily sacrifices. The type of coalition governments, that Israel gets, can be highly affected by small religious political parties. There will be political pressures to get daily sacrifices implemented.

Since the Book of Daniel prophesies that the daily sacrifices will be stopped (Daniel 9:27, 11:31, 12:11) they must be first started.

The time will come when there will some type of permission for that.

Various ones, and not just Yehudah Glick, are taking steps hoping for the daily sacrifices to be re-implemented (e.g. watch Jewish Animal Sacrifice Calendar).

That said, shofars are normally blown on the Feast of Trumpets in accordance with the following:

24 … In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.  (Leviticus 23:24)

1 And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work. For you it is a day of blowing the trumpets.  (Numbers 29:1)

That day begins at sunset Friday September 15th in 2023.
