INTERSECTION OF THE OLD & NEW
Shavuot (a/k/a Pentecost) begins at sundown on June 4. This month’s featured blog looks at connections between Passover & Pentecost - both in the wilderness and in the aftermath of the Cross…
Pentecost: The Countdown
WHAT'S NEW?
In the midst of so much heaviness these days, writing this article about the practice of sitting shiva (the Jewish mourning ritual) helped me reconsider what it means to grieve well, and to be present with others in their grief.

TASTE & SEE
Fun fact: dairy foods are traditional fare for celebrating Shavuot, or Pentecost. Why? The Law (as well as the land) is compared to “milk and honey,” and since Shavuot marks the anniversary of God giving the Law on Mt. Sinai, we celebrate by eating sweet things made with milk! Here’s a recipe from my grandma - enjoy!

Cheese Pancakes (GF)
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1.5 TBSP potato starch
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
Blend cottage cheese with egg yolks, potato starch, sugar and salt. Add stiffly beaten egg whites until well blended. Drop mixture by tablespoonfuls into a hot greased pan. Cook over medium heat until puffed and dry. Turn with spatula and brown lightly on other side. Serve with fruit, berries, sour cream or preserves. {These kind of taste like an omelet blended up as a pancake!}
I love palm trees for all sorts of reasons: from the fact that my name is from "palm tree" in Hebrew...to my desire to lay down my life before Jesus like those palm branches on the road to Jerusalem. (This is a photo I took during a recent trip to the Holy Land

Welcome to The Palm Branch, the monthly newsletter of Beginning with Moses. As a Jewish follower of Jesus, I love to share about intersections between the Old and New, exploring ways that these intersections enrich our understanding of who Jesus was and is. Each issue includes an article with messianic insights, information about recent ministry happenings, and a favorite Jewish recipe {usually from my grandma's cookbook}. If there are specific rituals, holidays, etc., you'd ever like me to share about, please let us know!
Shalom,
Tammy Priest
