He kept them, (Acts 20:6,16; 27:9) and urged us to follow his example, 1Cor 11:1; 5:8. After the cleansing process is over, the shofars must be taken out from the solution. Stop not dating people because your mother doesn’t want you to date them.
In Judaism, there are quite a lot of religious items which are considered to be of great importance. Every Jew makes use of various types of religious items on a daily basis in order to follow the exact commandments of God. The tallit is the prayer shawl which is used by Jews every morning during the prayers. There are also many other items which might not be used on a daily basis but are still equally important. One such item which is of much importance in Judaism is the shofar.
So our first reading tonight recalls God’s commands to Moses before the Israelites observed their first Passover, the one done literally on the verge of flight from their slavery in Egypt. “The first month of the year” does not refer to the start of the Jewish calendar year; as is well known, Rosh Hashanah occurs in the fall. But Passover, in the middle of Nisan, begins the Jewish liturgical year. Their seder is a “re-presentation” of all that happened to them; they are to regard themselves as being themselves in Egypt, about to be liberated from physical slavery, ready to flee as soon as they receive the word.
No matter the amount or work and planning they put into, a wedding is not just about two people. It is about religion, tradition and the joining of two families. Couples should be sensitive to tradition when they plan their nuptials.
Stop dating people because your parents expect you to marry another Jew, or another Catholic, or another whatever. Most people I know are not religious at all, yet a lot of these same non-religious people still feel the need to date within their own religion due to their parents and their upbringing.
As we mentioned earlier, June is the most popular month for weddings. But each season has a top month for nuptials. Once the season has been selected, couples are encouraged to shop around for the best deals at reception halls and from caterers. If you are considering an outdoor affair, weather is always the most pressing concern. The spring may be wetter than the summer, but since most couples rent tents, it shouldn’t be an issue.
I’ve dated women who chanted every morning when they got up and prayed to Buddha. I’ve dated women who go to church. Have I gone with them? No. Have I respected them and their belief system? Absolutely!
Sound the shofar! It is more than just a ram’s horn! The shofar is both an important symbol of Jewish culture and an instrument that heralds significant festivals, covenants and beliefs of the Jewish people.
