Tishri - WikipĂ©dia (328 words)
Le nom de Tishri, d'origine akkadienne tašrītu "Commencement", de šurrû "commencer"), était largement utilisé depuis la captivité à Babylone, apparaissant dans le Talmud et le Targoum d'Onkelos.
Dans la Bible, Tishri est connu sous le nom d'"Ethanim", le septième mois, et c'est d'ailleurs ainsi qu'il est appelé encore de nos jours par les Karaïtes.
jour de Tishri est célébré le jeûne de Guedaliah (Godolias), commémorant l'assassinat du gouverneur de Judée par un "loyaliste" judéen, ce qui entraîna l'abandon massif de la Terre d'Israël par ses occupants.
