HOLIDAYS

All of Adonai’s Feast Day’s begin at sundown on the evening before. 

PESACH (PASSOVER)

Passover begins at sundown on Friday, March 30 and concludes at sundown on Friday, April 6, 2018. Since we will also be in the week of the Feast of the Unleavened Bread, foods brought to Oneg on Shabbat, March 31st will need to be foods that do not contain leaven.

COMMUNITY PASSOVER

The Community Passover Seder (includes all the elements of the Passover meal) is Tuesday, April 3rd at 6:30 PM at 101 W. Clinton Avenue in Fresno. Tickets are available through Wednesday, March 28th. Please go to the Passover link for more information.

Why is this night different from all other nights? Come to the Passover Seder to hear the answer.

Passover is the first of the spring holidays and is celebrated on the 14th day of Nisan. The word Passover, Pesach in Hebrew, means to “pass” or to “hover over.”

In the book of Sh’mot (Exodus), the Bible tells that God delivered the Children of Israel from slavery in Egypt by inflicting ten plagues upon the Egyptians before the Pharaoh would release the Israelite slaves. The tenth and worst of the plagues was the death of the first-born throughout the land. The Israelites were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a lamb and, so therefore the Lord would pass over the first-born in these homes.

At the commandment of the Lord in Sh’mot (Exodus) 12:15, for the duration of the feast no leavened bread is eaten, therefore the week that immediately follows is called “The Feast of the Unleavened Bread”. Matzah (flat unleavened bread) is a symbol of the holiday.

The story does not end there. The Passover story picks up in each of the gospel accounts. Matthew 26, Mark 14, Luke 22 and John chapters 13 through 17 all record the various observations of the Passover Seder. We recognize this as The Last Supper.

Join us for a wonderful evening of music, Messianic dance, traditions and dinner. The teaching by Rabbi Amnon Shor will weave each part together pointing us to the One who fulfills this feast in every detail, our Messiah Yeshua (Jesus).

SHAVUOT (FEAST OF FIRSTFRUITS, PENTECOST)

Shavuot occurs on the first day of the week. This year is occurs on Sunday, May 20th. We will celebrate Shavuot on Shabbat, May 19th. 

Shavuot is an agricultural holiday set during the wheat harvest. It marks the day a new year’s wheat harvest may be eaten (Leviticus [Vayikra] 23:14, 16). Prior to that day, only the previous year’s crop may be consumed. The entire crop must be consecrated to Elohim first. The Firstfruits offering fulfill this requirement.
