Why are the feasts celebrated?
They are God's plan to bring us closer to Him.
• He’s our Passover lamb. Pentecost, we have the Holy Spirit that He promised us. Tabernacles which is the dwelling of God with us.
• The Feast of Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles are times of rejoicing. The feasts are the pattern for us to follow in our redemption.
• A great platform for a family to keep the feasts can be very exciting for the kids and adults because they are learning together.
• The material you receive from a Jewish Book Store and a synagogue help you a lot. The foundation of the Jewish belief is the family, that is huge.

• One of the commands was to celebrate the feasts.
• I choose every opportunity I have to go to my elder brother (Jewish brother) and say teach me, relate to me, we’re family.
When you teach you learn.
If you are teaching your children not only are you learning, but you are also retaining more than if you had just studied.
When we talk about why we should celebrate the feasts, we have a relationship with the Lord.
We have become His chosen people to celebrate the feasts.
