HOLYDAYS


 This section of the web site provides general information about the most significant mo’edim (or “appointed times”) that are important to Hebrews all over the world. All of the Biblical mo’edim are prophetic and reveal great truth about the plans and counsel of the Most High God of Israel.

The Hebrew Week (shavu‘a) begins on (Rishon) Sunday and ends on (Shabbat) Saturday:

 Since the Hebrew day (yom) begins at sundown, you must remember that a Hebrew holiday actually begins on the night before the day listed on a Hebrew calendar.   

Genesis 1:5...And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
