Rosh Chodesh Sivan begins Monday night, the 6th of June, and lasts for one day.
On Motzai Shabbat (Saturday night), June 11th, the festival of Shavuot begins. On Shavuot, we celebrate receiving on Mount Sinai the Torah, God’s instruction manual for life. Even those who are unaffiliated, without realizing it, observe part of the Torah. For example, The 10 Commandments, many already believe in God, do not worship idols, honor their parents, do not commit murder, adultery etc.
Begin at whatever level of observance you are currently on, and pick one area you are motivated to strengthen this month. At the end of each day/week, mark off on your checklist if you kept that observance.
Question for the month:
“What area of observance will I strengthen this month or at least learn more about?”
