Does anyone celebrate the Jewish feasts and celebrations?

Which ones do you celebrate and what do you do?

I was just asking because Yom Kippur is coming up and I was thinking about celebrating it (I am a Christian). I could fast and consider my ways, make confession, and thank the Lord for making atonement for my sins.

Do any other Christians do this?

  • I am not changing religions, but these are the celebrations that God has given to His people!!!

    The reason I even looked into this today, was I was researching Tammuz worship and how Christmas and Easter are really holidays about Tammuz and Ishtar, that Christians have made about Jesus. And I began to wonder why we don't celebrate the holidays that God gave to us in the Bible. The early Christians in the Bible still celebrated the holidays and feasts (not out of legalism, but love for God).

    So anyways, I was just thinking about ways to enhance our yearly celebrations.

  • Well, I found a lot of information about the Messianic significance of all this Biblical holidays. The link I posted above has a lot of very beautiful info about how we can see Jesus coming for his bride in Rosh Hashanah.

  • The communal confession is an important part of Yom Kippur. Here are a couple of resouces to help you find a synagogue in your area. Be warned, tickets are often required for the high holidays.

  • I don't know anon. Good question! LOL. But I don't really want to go to a traditional synagogue.

    But I did find a great Messianic congregation about an hour away that seems really cool. It would be awesome to go there for their Messianic Rosh Hashanah service, sometime. And they do welcome all Christians, for sure.
