Leviticus 23:21 --And you shall proclaim on the same day that it is a holy convocation to you. You shall do no customary work on it. It shall be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.”

According to Tradition, this festival commemorates the Revelation of Mount Sinai, which was “the aim and object of the Exodus from Egypt.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 43
