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!

Happy Passover!

Chag Pesach Sameach!

History repeats itself . . .

First there were the Israelites in Bible times, who were saved from sudden slaughter when they obeyed God by putting blood on the lintels and doorposts of their home. The Angel of Death passed over, and the Hebrew children lived to tell their great story of God’s faithfulness.

Fast-forward to today.

Now, we as people of faith can celebrate being saved from certain death when we apply the blood of Yeshua our Messiah to our lives and repent of those sins that kept us in our own personal bondage.

To help you celebrate this wonderful occasion, we have put together some Passover resources so that you can be educated and inspired by the beauty of this holy feast.

May we together—both Jew and Gentile—celebrate the Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world!
