Sivan – The 3rd Month

Shalom Torah Fans!

Sometimes people ask me how they can introduce their friends and loved ones to the truth without offending them. The fact is, hearing that you’ve been celebrating the wrong holidays, that you’ve been fed lies, that you’ve been operating under a misunderstanding of the Bible – those are hard pills to swallow. There is always […]

High fitness: 8 minutes (men), 9 minutes (women)
Moderate fitness: 9 minutes (men), 10.5 […]

What does it mean?
By Michael Rood

Now that Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and Firstfruits have concluded, we are in the midst of counting the Omer. As it is commanded in Leviticus 23:15, we are counting seven Sabbaths, or fifty days from Firstfruits. These fifty days bring us to Shavuot, the final spring feast.

What is Shavuot or Pentacost?
By Michael Rood

In the weeks following the first Passover, the Israelites traveled through the desert carrying everything they had with them. The counting of the Omer every year that starts at Firstfruits reflects this journey of the Israelites to the base of Mount Sinai. And when the count ends, we reach […]
