Mystical 'Shavuot' Teaching airs live May 22;
Pascagoula event atzeret for Joes
PASCAGOULA, MS. -- "When the day of Shavuot (Pentecost) 'fully came'", so did the Holy Spirit, fulfilling the count of the Omer. Maggid ben Yoseif teaching "A mystical Shavuot" will explain the Orthodox observance of Shavuot -- in his usual mystical way -- live 5 p.m. Saturday, May 22, 2010, on Paltalk.com and Ustream.tv from Manna From Heaven congregation.
The Pascagoula First Nation (Heb. PESACH-GEULAH or literally "Passover Redemption") once committed a "mass suicide" when the entire nation drowned themselves in the Singing River between Pascagoula and Gautier, MS., rather than fight with the warring Biloxi Nation. The Legend of the Singing River has it that the river continues to "sing" the praise of the Pascagoula. And now it appears that Creator has chosen this region and a small congregation led by David Matthews of the Creek Nation and his wife, Brenda, to clarify "Christian" misinterpretations of first Passover and now Shavuot, that promise to bring the Joeish and Jewish communities much closer together.
Shavout, which is celebrated 50 days after the second day of Passover, culminates a season of preparation that yearly commemorates the receiving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. The festivals taken together end with what is known as an atzeret or another way of saying that is Shavuot is the atzeret (conclusion) for the Passover season and counting of the omer.
