  The Month of Tishrei
The month of Tishrei begins the "period" (tekufah) of the autumn (whose three months--Tishrei, Cheshvan, Kislev--correspond to the three tribes of the camp of Ephraim--Ephraim, Menashe, Benjamin--who were situated to the west).
In the Bible, Tishrei is called yerach ha'etanim, "the month of the strong" or "the month of the ancients." With respect to the reckoning of "years," Tishrei is the first month of the year (before the giving of the Torah to Israel, Tishrei was the universal first month of the year.
Tishrei permutes to reishit, "beginning," as is said [of Divine providence over the land of Israel and the entire world]: "always are the eyes of Havayah your God there, from the beginning of the year until the end of the year").

 Tishrei | telshemesh.org
The next step of the Tishrei season is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, a day of fasting and praying for the strength to change what we must change.
On the first of Tishrei [Rosh haShanah] the moon [the Shekhinah] is covered, and it does not shine until the tenth day [Yom Kippur], when Israel turn with a perfect repentance, so that the supernal Mother [Binah, the womb of souls and creator of the world] gives light to Her.
The rest of the month of Tishrei, and the beginning of the month of Cheshvan, is a quiet time, a time of recovery from the intensity of the holidays, a time to put into practice the teachings of the seasons.

 Sukkot on Virtual Jerusalem
The month of Tishrei begins the autumn season (tekufah), whose three months--Tishrei, Cheshvan, Kislev--correspond to the three tribes of the camp of Ephraim--Ephraim, Menashe, Benjamin-who were situated to the west in the desert encampment of the Jews.
In the Bible, Tishrei is called "yerach ha'eitanim," "the month of the strong" or "the month of the ancients." With respect to the reckoning of years, Tishrei is the beginning of the new year.
This is alluded to in the name Tishrei which begins with the three letters tav, shin, reish, in the"reflected" order of the alef-beit (from end to beginning).

 About the Hebrew Calendar
This, and the Molad Tishrei for the following year, determine whether the year needs to be defective, regular, or excessive, and the year's position in the 19-year cycle determines whether it is a leap year or a common year.
To find the Molad Tishrei for a given year, simply count from year 1 (starting with 2 days, 5 hours, and 204 halakhim as the Molad Tishrei for that year), counting 29 days, 12 hours, and 793 halakhim for each month.
These considerations may cause the actual date of 1 Tishrei to be postponed from the date of the Molad Tishrei.

 Tent of Abraham - Tishrei: Jewish Sacred Month
Since it heads up this month-long sabbatical process of renewing our lives, it might be more deeply understood as the "renewal of the year." Jewish tradition sees it as the anniversary of the creation of the original human being, and this gives it a universalist cast.
The tenth day of Tishrei, Yom Kippur ("Day of Atonement"), is shaped from before sunset (this year the evening of Wednesday, October 12) to after sunset on Thursday, October 13, to be 26 hours of prayer and fasting in repentance and forgiveness.
Recently, some congregations, recognizing the need for conscious reconciliation between the children of Abraham's two families, have included the reading of the passage in Genesis (25: 9-18) in which Isaac and Ishmael are reunited in burying their father Abraham, and reconcile their lives thereafter.

 The Incredible Month of Tishrei
Tishrei is the first month on any Jewish calendar, but in the Torah we see something rather perplexing; it is referred to consistently as the seventh month, not the first.
The seventh month, Tishrei, is the time that we can look at the world from the inside, from its spiritual core outward, its unified theory and building blocks.
It is the anniversary of the day that God created man. All the other creations, which receive their life force from God, who is sometimes called "soul of the universe," have no possible means of responding to Him.
