Notes on Shabbat

These are notes my wife took from a Thursday night class.

Yom Kippurim … HaShem isn’t about all the details of you. It is His greatest Chesed (mercy). Season of Repentance equals the reset button.

What is Shabbat about?  The idea of Shabbot is DON’T DO ANY CREATIVE ACTS!

Refrain from making something useable. Stop and reflect on things we’ve done that week. You want to experience Divine Presence.

What did I accomplish last week? 1st day, 2nd day, etc.

Introspection. Did I accomplish some Spiritual goal? We go through valleys. Ps. 84 (not productive). The valley isn’t property. Blessed is in the man equals pilgramage. Valley of Baca (pass through)? Valley of weeping. The occupation of the person to turninto an oasis for others. Something happens in this process. Sanctified 7th day. Adam married Eve. Then G-d blessed the 7th Day. 31 processes everything is very good. Small success is great success.


Prophecy of your entire week. Read this is what my week will look like. Read it on Shabbat.

  1. Shabbat is the pinnacle
  2. Now I can prepare myself for the week.
  3. Know the Hebrew date.
  4. Write in your dairy every day. This way you build a data base of what you will experience that day.


Elul? Elul is preparation for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Reflect on the year. Make idealist goals.

Yom Kippur … the Controversy

There is a controversy as to when Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) actually occurs. According to the Rabbinic calendar, it is to start tonight. But look at the verse…
Leviticus 23:27 (CJB)
27 “The tenth day of this seventh month is Yom-Kippur; you are to have a holy convocation, you are to deny yourselves, and you are to bring an offering made by fire to Adonai.
So we must know when the month started to know when the 10th day is.
The only feast day that starts on the new moon is the Feast of Trumpets Numbers 29:1 (CJB)
1 “‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you are to have a holy convocation; do not do any kind of ordinary work; it is a day of blowing the shofar for you.
He Created the Moon for Holidays
There can be no doubt that the biblical Holidays are dependent on the moon. The strongest proof of this is the passage in Ps 104:19 which declares:
“He created the moon for Mo’adim [appointed times]”
The Hebrew term Mo’adim [appointed times] is the same word used to describe the Biblical Holidays. Leviticus 23, which contains a catalog of the Biblical Holidays opens with the statement: “These are the Mo’adim [appointed times] of YHWH, (Yahweh, Adonai, God, blessed be His Name)  holy convocations which you shall proclaim in their appointed times [Mo’adam].” So when the Psalmist tells us that God created the moon for Mo’adim [appointed times] he means that the moon was created to determine the time of the Mo’adim of YHWH, that is, the Biblical Holidays.
People were deceived into changing the feast times, Holy days, even our weekly Shabbat after the first century. For the sake of convenience they are willing to compromise on this issue….I am not so willing.

The moon was sighted on Monday May 25th. On Monday May 25, 2009 the new moon was sighted from Israel. The moon was first sighted from Jerusalem by David Cachicas at 19:46 and shortly thereafter by Nehemia Gordon, Devorah Gordon, Yehoshua Newman, Joelle Crawshaw, Eli Crawshaw, Rick Busenbark, Aviva Azkerman, Sam Crawshaw and Adam Kinghorn. Below are photos of the new moon over Jerusalem taken by Yehoshua Newman: source
According to scripture previously mentioned Yom Kippur is 10 days later and Sukkot is 5 days after that.

Therefore, Yom Kippur begins Tuesday night and ends Wednesday night. At least, according to the Torah.
