Why Christians Should Celebrate Shavuot

Learning about and celebrating Jewish holy days that have been handed down through the ages in the Scriptures, like Shavuot (also known as The Feast of Weeks), is a great way to experience God and His life-transforming presence in a special way. Watch the Holy Spirit inspired teaching on Shauvot and Pentecost by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn to gain a deeper on understanding of why Christians should celebrate the feasts.

Shavuot starts on the evening of Saturday, June 4th ending the two-day holiday at sundown on Monday, June 6th. For the Jewish calendar night begins before day, thus the holiday or festival begins on the sunset of the previous day. Why do Jewish holidays start at nighttime? According to the Torah, the story of creation in Genesis says “And it was evening, and it was morning day one”, “And it was evening, and it was morning; the second day”, thus night comes before day. So for the Jewish calendar all days begin at nightfall and end the next day at nightfall including holidays.

Shavuot is a two-day festival and begins on the 6th day of Sivan and ends on the 7th day except for many practicing Jews in Israel it ends on the 6th day of Sivan (1 Day celebration). Since the Torah does not actually state an official date for Shavuot there are some disputes among traditional and non-traditional Jews about which date the festival should fall on. The festival marks the wheat harvest in Israel and commemorates the day God gave the Torah to Israel on Mount Sinai.

 

And as you join us in praising the Living God for the miracle of the modern-day state of Israel, we pray you’ll renew your own resolve to bless Israel and the Jewish people by giving a generous gift of support.

May God bless you for being a blessing to Israel and the Jewish people

Yes, I want to Bless the Jewish People in Israel!
