Yom Teruah — a day of making a ‘loud noise’ of joy and victory

Josh sounds a "loud noise" on Yom Teruah.Many associate the Feast of Trumpets with shofars, or trumpets made from horns. However, the LORD calls for two silver trumpets on this special day. Rather than a warning or battle call, as is associated with the shofar, this is a "loud sound," or teruah, of joy.
