As a congregation Sha'ar Hashamayim has decided that we will be celebrating the Biblical feasts according to the Karaite tradition. This calendar is obviously different from the Rabbinic calendar. The best way to explain it is to post what they wrote about the difference. I hope this will clarify. We are not making this an issue of salvation or a reason to dis-fellowship with anyone. After much study and prayer, this is what we believe to be the Biblical calendar. We do our best to be obedient to what we find out to be Scriptural. This is just our attempt to be in line with the Word. It is our conviction. We put no obligation on any one. Salvation is by grace through faith in Yeshua our Messiah and always will be be. Here is a post from a website that will give more information, https://escapeallthesethings.com/holy-day-calendar/
The Biblical Holy days found in Lev 23 are Prophetic pictures of salvation fulfilled by Yeshua (Jesus), the Messiah of Israel and the world. Each and every one of them paints a perfect picture of His coming to earth bringing atonement the first time and His coming again to bring judgment. The fall feasts especially are so rich in prophetic display that all one needs to do to defend the Gospel is share the Holy days to see that picture revealed..
