Will the rapture happen this year?

While I don't look at specific Jewish celebrations, traditions and laws as having anything whatever to do with the time of the rapture, I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment that signposts are everywhere in the stage setting of the coming tribulation.

Since we as saints of the Church Age aren't appointed to wrath (1 Thess. 5:9-11) and the tribulation era –all seven years—is the period of the wrath of God (Rev. 6:17), the moment of rapture must indeed be at hand.

The Christian must be ready at all times, because the rapture is imminent (could happen at any moment). We are told to be ready (Matt. 24:44). When we see all the things prophesied for the tribulation BEGIN to come to pass, we are instructed to look up and lift up our heads, for our redemption is drawing near (Lk. 21:28).
