About this sound Shavuot (help·info)(or About this sound Shovuos (help·info), in Ashkenazi usage; Shavuʿoth in Classical and Mizrahi Hebrew (Hebrew: שב 93;עו& #1514;‎, lit. "Weeks"), or the Feast of Weeks, is a Jewish holiday that occurs on the sixth day of the Hebrew month of Sivan (late May or early June).
Shavuot commemorates the anniversary of the day God gave the Torah to the entire nation of Israel assembled at Mount Sinai, although the association between the giving of the Torah (Matan Torah) and Shavuot is not explicit in the Biblical text. The holiday is one of the Shalosh Regalim, the three Biblical pilgrimage festivals. It marks the conclusion of the Counting of the Omer.
The date of Shavuot is directly linked to that of Passover. The Torah mandates the seven-week Counting of the Omer, beginning on the second day of Passover and immediately followed by Shavuot. This counting of days and weeks is understood to express anticipation and desire for the Giving of the Torah. On Passover, the people of Israel were freed from their enslavement to Pharaoh; on Shavuot they were given the Torah and became a nation committed to serving God.
The word Shavuot means weeks, and the festival of Shavuot marks the completion of the seven-week counting period between Passover and Shavuot.
In Hasidic thought, the word Shavuot "Weeks" is interpreted as also an acronym for Shavuot, Bikkurim, Atzeret, Torah.
Shavuot is one of the lesser known Jewish holidays among secular Jews in the Jewish diaspora, while those in Israel are more aware of it.
According to Jewish law, Shavuot is celebrated in Israel for one day and in the Diaspora (outside of Israel) for two days. Reform Judaism celebrates only one day, even in the Diaspora.
~Anybody see anything missing? There is no word "Jew", this feast was for the 12 tribes not JEWS. So where are the 12 tribes? Did God break his covenant with the 12 tribes?
Did James lie in his epistle in verse one chapter one addressed to the 12 tribes scattered abroad in Europe?
Ladies and gentlemen- for lack of knowledge you perish.
The truth is buried under a blanket of Jewish manure every time.
