Congratulations by ECU President Boris Lozhkin on the Shavuot Holiday
28/05/2020

In Israel, the first harvesting of wheat is already beginning. It is namely at this time that Jews celebrate a holiday uniting Jews, Christians, and generally all people in the world – Shavuot or the Feast of Weeks.

Shavuot is literally translated from Hebrew as “Weeks.” 3,332 years ago, in 1312 BC, seven weeks after Pesach, when Jews were released from slavery and left Egypt, on the fiftieth day of their wanderings, Moses received the Torah and the tablets with the Ten Commandments from the Creator on Mount Sinai, which became the main Law not only for Jews.

Thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness, thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not covet the neighbor's house, honor thy father and thy mother ... These commandments still remain the main moral and ethical basis for all human civilization.

Chag Shavuot Sameach!
