Happy Shavuot!

2013-Shavuot-E-Greeting-Header4
What Is Shavuot?

Shavuot is a Jewish holiday/holy day celebrated on the sixth of Sivan to celebrate Moses receiving the Ten Commandments on Mt. Sinai. It is the second of the three pilgrimage feasts in which Jews would travel to the Temple in Jerusalem to give their first fruits. The festival takes place exactly 50 days after the festival of Passover. Shavuot is referred to as Pentecost by Christians and is also sometimes referred to as the Feast of Weeks.

What Is the Proper Greeting for Shavuot?

The greeting for Shavuot is simply “Chag Sameach!” (Happy Holiday).

When Is Shavuot This Year?

Jewish Year 5773: Sunset May 14, 2013 – sunset May 16, 2013

What Bible Verse Corresponds With Shavuot?

“And it shall be, when you come into the land which the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, and you possess it and dwell in it, that you shall take some of the first of all the produce of the ground, which you shall bring from your land that the LORD your God is giving you, and put it in a basket and go to the place where the LORD your God chooses to make His name abide” (Deuteronomy 26:1-2 NKJV).

A Shavuot Blessing

May your home be filled with love,
May your heart be filled with peace,
May your life be filled with joy,
On Shavuot and every day!

Start Blessing Others With the Biblical Practice of Blessing

John-Garr_VSMWhat is the biblical practice of blessing? How can you share biblical blessing with your family and friends? Because the word blessing appears more than 500 times in the Bible, we know it is a part of God’s plan for His people. Join us as we visit with Dr. John D. Garr, theologian, presbyter, educator, and President of Restoration Foundation, to discuss his book Blessings for Family and Friends. Jonathan Bernis and Dr. Garr will be discussing ways to help you get started blessing those who need to see God’s favor.

Be sure to watch Dr. John Garr on our TV show the week of May 13, 2013. Until then, watch previous TV shows online.

Sukkot,The Feast of Tabernacles, Celebrated This Week

A sukkah, or booth, used during the Jewish holiday known as Sukkot, or Feast of Tabernacles.

By Jonathan Bernis,
CEO and President of Jewish Voice Ministries International

Otherwise known as the Feast of Tabernacles, the Feast of Ingathering, or the Feast of Booths, Sukkot begins just five days after Yom Kippur. (This year Sukkot started on September 30 and goes through October 7, 2012.) It is a seven-day period when the Jewish People recall God’s faithfulness and provision through their forty-year period of wandering in the wilderness.

They remember God’s provision of food, water, shelter, clothing, guidance, light, and heat during the wilderness years. During this week, each Jewish family lives in a small temporary dwelling (or booth) made of branches. At night, they look up at the stars and recall God’s promise to Abraham that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars in the heavens. (more…)

Why Do Messianic Jews Celebrate the Passover Seder?

Why do Messianic Jews still celebrate the Passover Seder? And why do some Christians also observe this traditional Jewish holiday? Jonathan Bernis answers this question during our March 27, 2012 Jewish Voice webcast.
