Shavuot - 24 May 2015

This year Shavuot falls on Sunday 24 May 2015. This means a double Sabbath.

As we do not believe in Jesus' atoning sacrifice, the festival is celebrated in a typical Jewish fashion.

Shavuot is the day the Torah came down with Moses. We must eat honey and milk products on this day. To remind us of the sweetness of the Torah.

A handy guide to know more about the festival from a Jewish point of view is at, http://www.gojcc.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/guide_shavuot.pdf
