on Kaunas Messianic site,
created on initiative of
Vilnius Messianic Community.
Since the rebirth of Israel in 1948, Messianic Judaism is a national Jewish movement which restores natural development of the first authentic Apostolic Congregation of Ya‘akov (Jacob, James the Just). This development was interrupted in course of aggression of Imperial Rome against Judea (this war enabled spread of the Salvation among Gentiles at the expense of the Jews, see here). While restoring historical situation of the 1st age B.C.E., Messianic Judaism also gives a chance to last Gentile Christians who have not turned back to heathendom yet.
Only Jews alone can establish their Messianic communities. Gentiles can be admitted to Jewish Messianic communities under easened conditions, determined by the Apostolic Council (Acts 15:19–21), but they cannot impact on Jews any non-Jewish theosophy which leads to disintegration (e.g. any “correct theology”, obligatory dogmas, etc.)
Gentiles living far from Jewish Messianic Communities, can form Messianic groups within their own confessions, in which they overcome non-Abrahamic mentality, disintegration and Anti-Semitism once prompted by Imperial Rome.

groups, this site aims:

23:39–43) of Tabernacles: cf. Zach 14:16–17, Math 17:1–9, Acts
18:1–3, as well as especially John 7:37–38 with an allusion to a
Temple ritual of taking living water from the pool of Siloam (Shilōah)
to the Temple through the Water Gates and carrying it in a golden jug to
be poured over the Altar.
John 7:38 renders Hebr. miqqirbō ‘from his inside (inward, heart, entrails)’, here simply – ‘from him’, all translations via Greek being nonsensically vulgar.
Sukkōt lasts 7 days from Tishrey (Sunset 14 /) 15, and finishes on the Eighth of the Assembly (Shemīnī Atseret), passing on into the Festival of the Joy of Torah (Śimhat Tōrā), Tishrey (12/) 13. The latter celebrates end and the beginning of the annual Torah readings daily in 54 weekly Parashōt.

yōm tərū‘ā tašap
tashaf is abbreviation of the number of the year (5)780 with the Hebrew letters Ta-Ša-P tāw-šīn-pē meaning 400, 300, 80, the 6th millenium being default.
Yōm Tərū‘ā ‘The day of Trumpets’, is a festival ordained by G-d in Torah, Lev 23:24, 25:9. The word tərū‘ā means a unison shouting of many people (cf. Jos 6:5). For Messianic Jews the blowing of Shofar on Yōm Tərū‘ā anticipates awaited coming of Messiah Y-shua‘ (1 Thess 4:16).
The feast is celebrated during two days, from sunset on Elul 29, 5779 (September 29, 2019) till sunset on Tishrey 2, 5780 (October 1, 2019). Traditional Rabbinical Judaism counts the beginning of a new Year, Rosh Ha-Shanah ‘Head of the Year’ from Tishrey 1, although Tishrey is the seventh month of the Jewish Liturgical Calendar, the first month being Abīb (read Aviv), called Nisán since the Babylonian captivity. For this see Ex 13:4 and Esther 3:7, as well as publication by a Karaite Nehemia Gordon How Yom Teruah became Rosh Hashanah on web.
The word ābīb means ‘spring’ in Ivrit. As an original name of month it is of pre-Babylonian origin, as well as three other survived archaic names of the second (zīw), seventh (’ētānīm) and the eighth (būl) months.
Currently Jewish-Babylonian names of months are:
Tishréy, the 7th month,
Heshwán, the 8th month,
Kisléw, the 9th,
Tévet, the 10th,
Shevát, the 11th,
Adár 1, the 12th, Adár 2, the 13th intercalary month,
Nisán, the 1st month,
Iyyár, the 2nd,
Siwán, the 3rd,
Tammúz, the 4th,
Av, the 5th,
Elúl, the 6th month. These names are of heathen origin, Tammuz being name of a pagan deity of Mesopotamia, derived in Aramaic from Akkadian, where it was of Sumerian origin Dumuzid.

Pesah and Shavu‘ot (‘[Seven] Weeks’) is innerly one festival
beginning with liberation from slavery and ending with entering a
Covenant with G-d. In spite of whatever agricultural origin the feast of
Shavu‘ot might have been in common Semitic pagan times, in Torah it
is connected with the first wheat harvest in the Promised Land and thus
manifests as a fulfilment of Pesah.
professing Oral Torah interpret VaYiqra’ (Leviticus) 23:15–16 as
counting the day of Shavu‘ot througth seven weeks from the first
Shabbat – Holy Day of Pesah. This gives Shavu‘ot on Sivan 6 every

feast of HANUKKÀ
(‘consecration’), which is celebrated on Kislev
25, periodically coincides with Christmas on December 25 d.
An obvious coincidence of number of the beginning of Hanukkah and
Christmas on the break of 24/25 days in the Jewich lunisolar and in the
Gregorian solar calendar, cannot be accedental. Rather they point to a
historic link between the Temple faith of the Moses Law and the faith of
the Gospel as to A
DAY OF MESSIANIC LIGHT coming into the world.
what year did this happen? Today we know this almost precisely, if a
of any date from/into Jewish - Julian, or Gregorian (even before the
Gregorian!) Calendar is free from errors. According to the Gospel, the
Lord was crucified (see Isaiah 53, Daniel 9:26) on the day before Pesah,
which occured on Sabbath that year.
