    Wasn't Yom Kippur and Yom Teruah on the same day this year

    or is Yom Teruah the first day, I was thinking it is the first Sabbath of the 7th month?

    (not trying to troll) serious question.

    We call it "Rosh Hashanah," the head of the year, though the Torah mention it being "Yom Teruah," as we blow the shofar that day (unless one of the days falls on Shabbat).

    But to answer your question, they cannot ever be on the same day. Rosh Hashanah is on the 1st of Tishrei, and Yom Kippur is on the 10th of Tishrei. Those dates, this year, corresponded to the September 21-22 (Rosh Hashanah) and September 30 (Yom Kippur). Yom Kippur does not always fall on Shabbat; last year, it was on a Wednesday, IIRC. In the next two years, it will be on a Wednesday, and the year after that it will be a Monday.

    Yom Kippur is the only fast day observed on Shabbat. Any other fast day falling on Shabbat is deferred until Sunday.

    17 years ago you said: "Y2K occurred on Shabbat this year."

    No, if its not in the Bible I'm not aware of what Yom Kippur is. I have no intention of dumping on Jews, just want to know about it.

    It is in the Torah. Bamidbar chapter 29 (specifically, verse 7).

    I have seen your questions. You are always trying to bait someone into a trap. You are untrustworthy.
