Jubilee Meaning and Origin

Anniversary (Hebrew)
The name Jubilee is a girl’s name meaning “anniversary” and is of Hebrew origin. Jubilee is an anniversary that marked every fiftieth year on the calendar (Leviticus 25:13-54, 27:17-24, Numbers 36:4). During jubilee, people who were to refrain from working the field for a whole year were given the opportunity to enjoy life. When Jesus read from the book of Isaiah, he proclaimed the release of captives to be done in the year of Jubilee (Leviticus 25:10). Today neither the Sabbath year nor the year of Jubilee is celebrated. The word Jubilee comes from the verb yabal, meaning to carry along as a flow or current would. Alternatively, from the Hebrew word Yobel, which was a trumpet made out of the ram’s horn.
