Notes:
 1: Purim is not a commanded festival. It was added by the Jews during the time of
Esther (See Esther 9:20-32). Though it was not commanded, it should be remembered
as a time when Yahweh saved the Jews from extinction. Purim is traditionally celebrated
with the reading of the Book of Esther. Other traditions added later include the baking and
eating of “hamantaschen,” which are pastries. The origin of this word is disputed, ranging from
translations meaning “Haman’s ears” to “Haman’s hat” to “Haman’s pockets.” Jews also typically
celebrate this day by dressing up and acting out the story of Esther.

Notes:
 * Denotes High Day [Holy Convocation]. On these days no work may be done until
sunset.
 All days begin the evening before, so work must cease by then for High Days.
 Wavesheaf (Sefirat HaOmer) is recognizable but not keepable. It is the morrow after the weekly
Sabbath (Leviticus 23:11-16), thus 50 days later will be Pentecost/Shavuot. This is the same “Morrow
after the Sabbath” or “First day of the week” when the women found the empty tomb (Lk. 24:1).
 The second Hebrew month is called Ziv in Scripture but its Babylonian/secular name is Iyyar.

Notes:
 The tenth Hebrew month is not named in Scripture. Its Babylonian/secular name is
Tevet.
 Hanukkah is not a commanded festival. In fact, the story is not found in Scripture at all,
but rather in the apocryphal book of 1 Maccabees. However, history does back up the information.
1 Maccabees 4 details how Judas called Maccabee (lit. “Judas the Hammer”) purified the Temple after
the Greeks (under Antiochus Epiphanes) defiled it. Judas led a revolt and purified the Temple. The
theory behind why eight days were chosen is that they had celebrated Sukkot just a couple of
months prior, and so they already had a pattern of joyous celebration lasting for eight days.
John 10:22 tells us that Yeshua was at the Temple on the “feast of dedication” (Hanukkah).
Though it never says He kept it, it is implied that He did. (Why else would He be there that day?).
