Passover Seder

We have found the celebration of the Feasts of the Lord, and especially Passover, to be enriching to our faith and to our Christian practice.

Visit our Passover page for suggestions on how to celebrate this holy day at home. You can also download a Messianic Passover Haggadah (order of service).

This day [Passover] shall be a day of remembrance for you. You shall celebrate it as a festival to the Lord; throughout your generations you shall observe it as a perpetual ordinance. (Exodus 12:14)

Purim Party

Purim is the holiday that remembers how God saved the Jewish people from a genocide through the intercession of Esther.

Visit our Purim page for activity suggestions and recipes.

These days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, in every family, province, and city; and these days of Purim should never fall into disuse among the Jews, nor should the commemoration of these days cease among their descendants. (Esther 9:28)

Shabbat

The Lord commanded us to keep the Sabbath holy. Just as He created for six days and then rested on the seventh, we too are to cease from our work on the seventh day of the week. This first gives us time to focus on the Lord and on our relationship with Him. It also reminds us that all of our time belongs to God, and that all that we have comes from His hand. He alone is our provider and He cares for us.

Visit our Shabbat page for resources on celebrating this day of rest with your family.

Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work. But the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. (Exodus 20:8-10a)

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.
Isaiah 9:6
