Observing the Holy Days During Worldwide Crisis

Due to concerns related to the Coronavirus pandemic, some have asked about the possibility of properly observing the Holy Days if supplies are not readily available.

We are living in exceptional circumstances and not everyone is able to leave their homes or travel certain distances to obtain specific supplies or foods that are used for the Holy Days. For example, matzah and wine might not be easily obtained in every area where the brothers and sisters gather as individuals, families or congregations. It is similar to how some in isolated areas and countries which are controlled by those who persecute Yeshua’s sheep are unable to purchase specific religious supplies.

Thus, if you are unable to purchase the necessary materials for any Holy Day, you will not be held responsible transgressing any commandments or tradition. During these difficult times, we must do the best we can under the circumstances at hand.

The Teacher of Righteousness is in agreement with this statement.

Please remember to keep your trust in our Heavenly Father and in His Son Yeshua. Do not give up hope. Pray for yourself, your families, your brothers and sisters and for the world. Be assured of our prayers for each of you.

May Yahweh bless you,

+Mar David
