SHAVUOT (6 Sivan) – One of the three pilgrim festivals (the others being Passover and Succot) which were marked by pilgrimages to Jerusalem to participate in the special Temple celebrations. It is known as ‘The Feast of Weeks’ because it falls seven weeks after Passover. It is also called ‘The Festival of First Fruits.’ Shavuot is a two-day observance (one in Israel). In Jewish tradition it commemorates the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai which took place on this date.
This would be Pentecost but our Christian calendar is several weeks off from the Hebrew this year. Last year they all aligned and I had hope the rapture was going to occur but alas it remains yet to be. Could be any moment now though and I hope it happens now. I am tired of getting old.
