ראשׁית קציר

The spring-time moed of Reishit Qatzir [Beginning of the Harvest] is also sometimes called Yom HaBikkurim [the Day of Firstfruits] and it occurs the day after the Sabbath during the week of the Chag HaMatzot.  This moed teaches us that should always put G-d first in our lives and honor Him since He set us free from bondage. In this moed we can see the resurrection of Messiah as the "first fruit" of those who are asleep.
