SEASONS: Yom Kippur 5778

The momentous 24-hour event of Yom Kippur draws attention to God’s provision for the annual covering of Israel’s national sin. A profound message, however, is embedded in the ancient ritual for all who live in the 21st century.

Shavuot (Leviticus 23)

Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall offer a new grain offering to the LORD. You shall bring from your dwellings two wave loaves of two-tenths of an ephah. They shall be of fine flour; they shall be baked with leaven. They are the firstfruits to the LORD.
