Today is Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. The traditional greeting – Shana Tova – means “good year.” It is pronounced shah NA toh VAH. Hear it pronounced @ http://www.forvo.com/word/shana_tova/. Happy New Year and Happy Rosh Hashana work just as well. 🙂
Today is also the beginning of HY 5775, which is a Shemitah (or Sabbath) Year during which God commanded the Jews to leave the land fallow and trust in His providence for their needs. On the last day of a Shemitah Year, Elul 29, all debts are forgiven. This year, Elul 29 will fall on Sept 13, 2015.
Pastor Cahn, who is a Messianic Jew, believes the Shemitahs of the 21st century have prophetic significance. He explains this in his books, The Harbinger and The Mystery of the Shemitah.

I also believe 5775 has prophetic significance, not only because I think Cahn’s arguments are compelling, but also because I see God speaking prophetically through Mary at Fatima, Garabandal and Medjugorje.
I have written before about my theory that Mary’s daily appearances at Medjugorje are retracing her son’s First Coming in preparation for His Second Coming. I have lined up evidence from the Bible, from the Jewish-Roman calendars, and from sky charts to demonstrate that the Medjugorje Anniversaries of the Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension fall in HY 5775, during CE 2015.
I have found the symbolism of these numbers significant, because 1 is God, 2 is Jesus, 5 is Mary, 7 is completeness. I see in 5775 and 2015 a message about the First Coming (57 and 2) when God chose Mary to bear and raise His Only Son and of the Second Coming (75 and 15) when, among other things, Jesus will reveal to the whole world in an overt and unmistakable way that His Blessed Mother is the Ark of the Covenant and the Queen of Heaven.
