Here are my (obviously Goyum) notes on my research into the relationship between the G-d appointed feasts of Isreal and significant events related to Christ and end times prophesies.
Jewish days begins with the Shabbat which begins at sundown the prior Gregorian day shown for each Hebrew Date. Thus, 18:00 (6pm) Jerusalem time is 15:39 UTC.
The official calendar of Israel — said to have been defined by Sanhedrin president Hillel II around C.E. 359 — begins counting years (had its Anno Mundi) from Julian data October 6, 3761 BC at AM 1, 5 hours and 204 parts after sunset (i.e. just before midnight).
The time and date of each new year is calculated from this point in time, using a synodic month of 29 days 12 hours and 793 parts such that each month (and thus new year at 1 Tishri) starts on the day of a new moon.
The difference between this "tropical" calendar and solar year is adjusted by adding an entire month (Adar II) every 19 years (not 17 years as noted earlier here).

All 7 feasts occur within the 7 months on the regious calendar between the month Aviv (Nisan) and the month Tishri (which means "to look").
|Gregorian Date||Hebrew Date||English, Jewish & Biblical Name||Prophetic Events|

Shavout—Feast of Weeks/PentacostExodus 34:22-23 celebrates the 7 weeks (50 days) from the second night of Pesach (thus "Pentecost," which means "50") Leviticus 23:9-22 Moses and the Israelites traveled from Egypt to Mt. Sinai, where God's fiery presence was seen. There occured the Matan Torah ("Giving of the Torah") when God gave them the Ten Commandments.
Shavuot is compared to a wedding, for it was on Shavout that the covenant between God and the Jewish people was sealed at Mount Sinai.
Also called Hag Ha Kazir Feast of Harvest, traditionally when the Book of Ruth is read.

|1 Tishrei Ethanim (7th month) begins the Days of Awe, 10 days of repentance in preparation for the Day of Atonement.|
Yom Teruah (Day of Shouting) —Feast of TrumpetsLeviticus 23:23-25 and Numbers 29:1-6 ( was changed from Nisan 1) Popularly called (as in Ez 40:1) Rosh Hashana (The head of the year) because the Old Testament gave no specific reason for shouting.
|Christians, however, have a very good reason for shouting. Some have named this date as the true birthday of Jesus. More importantly, in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout,..., and with the (shofar) trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds.” This event Christians call the "Rapture".|

Sukkot—Feast of TabernaclesLeviticus 23:33-43 (living in booths as a reminder of forefathers' nomadic life wandering in the wilderness. During this time, they lived in tents or tabernacles because they moved regularly. God's presence was seen among them as a bright cloud that shaded them by day and, a fiery cloud that kept them warm at night. God also supernaturally provided all of their food and water for those forty years. This feast looks forward to the time that we will live in God's presence, and He will care for us like a loving father.
Services revolve around the waving of the LuLav (The 4 species), the etrog (citrus) & the Sukkah
(Ingathering) Thanksgiving for harvest.

PesachPassover Seder commemorates deliverance of Isrealites from Egypt. When the Death-angel smote the first-born of Egypt, he "passed over" the houses of Isreal with lamb's blood on the doorpost. (Exodus 12:13-17) in fulfillment of prophesy to Abraham in Genesis 15:13-14 and Numbers 9)
Jewish teaching was that Elijah would come again at Passover. This is why a chair is reserved for Elijah at every seder table. Other part of the Passover speak of the Messiah:
John the Baptist (who Luke 1:17 notes "goes forth" in the strength and power of Elijah) born on this day.
