Shavuot or the Feast of Weeks

Rabbi & Brenda
by Rabbi Jeremy
& Brenda Storch





  Shavuot or the Feast of Weeks, is a Jewish holiday that traditionally occurs on the sixth day of the Hebrew month of Sivan (late May or early June). This year it falls on June 12th, beginning in the evening of June 11th according to the Jewish calendar, although there are different opinions (mine included).

Shavuot commemorates the anniversary of the day God gave the Torah to the entire nation of Israel Shavuot commemorates the anniversary of the day God gave the Torah to the entire nation of Israel assembled at Mount Sinai and the holiday is one of the three Biblical pilgrimage festivals. It marks the conclusion of the Counting of the Omer that we talked about in last month's newsletter. It is also the anniversary of the day God, through his son Yeshua, gave the Holy Spirit to all believers.
  The Good Shepherd
The date of Shavuot is directly linked to the season of Passover. The Torah mandates the seven-week Counting of the Omer. This counting of days and weeks is understood to express anticipation and desire for the Giving of the Torah. On Passover, the people of Israel were freed from their enslavement to Pharaoh; on Shavuot they were given the Torah and became a nation committed to serving God.
