“Let me go to the fields…” (Ruth 2:2)

This weekend, the Jewish people celebrate the holiday of Shavuot. Shavuot, also known as Pentecost, is not only the commemoration of God’s gift of His Word to His people, it is also the biblical harvest festival of firstfruits. In addition, every year on Shavuot, the Jewish people read the Book of Ruth in its entirety. In this picture from the middle of the 20th century, Israeli girls on a kibbutz celebrate Shavuot. Shabbat shalom, friends.
