On Friday and Saturday, Jews throughout the world will celebrate "Shavuot," a day also known as the "Feasts of Weeks." Christians know it by the Greek or Helenized name, "Pentecost."

To Christians, it is the day that the Holy Spirit was given to those at a certain place in the Temple area.

To Jews, it is the day that the Ten Commandments were given to Israel at Mount Sinai.

To Messianic or Nazarene Jews and others following Messiah Yeshua and leading a Jewish lifestyle, it is a time of great celebration because we have been given the Torah to live by and the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) to enable us to keep it.

What a blessed time it will be as we celebrate this day on May 30 in Lodi.
