I’ve been excited about and yet dreading this day for the past three months. The day I publicly commit to a one year blog project.
One full Hebraic year.
No backing out.
So here it is:
What: My family and I are going to take one year and live/celebrate all the feasts of the Lord including Shabbat and major/minor Jewish Holidays.
When: Official start day is sundown Elul 1 (on the Hebrew calendar) or August 11, 2010. This is the start of the 40 days of Teshuvah which includes Rosh ha-Shanah, the Hebrew New Year.
How: In freedom! We are a family of four including two fun kids ages 6 and 4. Things don’t go as they are planned. But, we will do it with a right heart and we will find Father God in it. And, we will learn along the way.
Why: This is the question for sure. And, the answer is three fold.
- I am a Jew, but I was raised Christian. A little over a year ago, the Lord placed a burden in my heart regarding my roots and my family’s origin. He called me to return to a Jewish lifestyle as He spelled out in His Holy Bible. This year, we will do just that.
- I also believe in bridging the gap between Christianity and Judaism, so that Gentile and Jew live as one new man according to His biblical standard that we may reap the blessings of the Lord.
- To show that the feasts can and should be a celebration and lived out in joy and honor of our heavenly Father.
So, I hope you will come along for the journey. Join in on the conversation and walk with us through this year of discovering Messiah in the biblical feasts!
