Well …RE: Dates... What about... June 4 ?
Recently I did send a letter to Fivedoves in which I mentioned June 4, 2011
“….June 4, 2011 until September 20, 2017 (there has been written much about September 20, 2017…)
Sept 20, 2017… last day - end - of 5777, Eve Feast of Trumpets…
how many days from June 4, 2011 until September 20, 20172300 days
Just a few days ago the date “June 4” was mentioned when Obama did speak about the 1967 borders…
1) Obama’s speech http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-13493142
"By definition, it means that the parties themselves, Israelis and Palestinians will negotiate a border that is different than the one that existed on June 4, 1967", he said….”
2) Netanyahu’s speech …answering to Obama http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-13515226
June 4, 1967. That is the day before the Six Day War began. The Six Day War began on June 5, 1967. It is amazing that Obama did not just say: “…the border that existed before June 5, or … before the War in June 1967 …” No, he said … June 4, ….
I did search at Google to find something about a June 4, ….
Here is what I found:
Shabbat, June 4, 2011 - 2 Sivan, 5771
Sivan 2 is marked on the Jewish calendar as Yom HaMeyuchas ("Day of Distinction"); it was on this day that G-d told Moses -- when Moses ascended Mount Sinai for the first time -- to tell the people of Israel: "You shall be My chosen treasure from among all the nations, for all the earth is Mine. You shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation" (Exodus 19:4-6).

Shavuot (Feast of Weeks or Pentecost/Feast of the Harvest) (Sivan, 6)
The second of three pilgrimage festivals, known in english as the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost. Shavuot falls on the 6th of Sivan. The 6th of Sivan is the day after the conclusion of the counting of the 49 days of the Omer, in accordance with the biblical command to count seven complete weeks from the morrow of Passover (Lev. 23:15-16).
The interpretation of the above verse was the subject of a bitter dispute between two parties within the Jewish people during the Second Temple period. The Pharisses, the party that accepted the Oral Law and claimed that it was the only authoritative interpretation of the Bible, took the words "day of rest" to refer to the opening holiday of Passover, on which no work could be performed. The Sadducees, who repudiated the Oral Law, took the phrase literally (in Hebrew the text reads "Sabbath") as the first Sabbath of Passover. Accordingly, the date of the holiday came out differently for each of these groups, with the Sadducees sometimes celebrating Shavuot as many as six days later than the Pharisses.
Shavuot has an agricultural character and is known in the sources as the "Feast of the Harvest" (Hag ha-Katzir, Ex. 23:16) and "the day of the first fruits" (Yom ha-Bikkurim, Num. 28:26). The main theme of the holiday, however is the commemoration of the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai, which by tradition (as inferred from verses in Exodus 19) occured on the 6th of Sivan. When the Temple stood. the most salient aspect of the holiday, aside from its various sacrifices, was the bringing of the special "twin loaves" (lehem ha-bikkurim) made from the newly cut wheat. From Shavuot throughout the summer the first fruits of the seven species (wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates).
Among certain Jewish communities, the mourning rites of the Omer period end with the advent of the month of Sivan, and it becomes permissible, among other things, to hold weddings. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th of Sivan are known as Sheloshet Yemei Hagbalah the Three Days of Restriction. These are the days when the children of Israel were restricted from approaching Mount Sinai prior to revelation, and certain holiday customs are observed at this time. Thus the propitiatory prayers called Tahanun are not recited and eulogies may not be delivered. The 2nd of Sivan is known as the yom ha-meyuhas, the day of importance, coming as it does between the first of the month (Rosh Hodesh), a semi-holiday, and the Three Days of Restriction. In some communities, the Sabbath prior to Shavuot is known as the Sabbath of the Bride (Shabbat Kallah), since the Torah, given on Shavuot, is metaphorically described as Israel's bride. These communities maintain the custom of reading a ketubbah (marriage contract) between the Torah and the Jewish people, at the time when the Torah is removed for reading from the holy ark.
On the evening of Shavuot Arvit is recited with the festival Amidah. It is customary to take care to recite the Arvit after dark in order to make certain that the holiday is begun after the completion of the seven full weeks of the Omer period. The Torah reading consists of the account of the giving of the Torah in Exodus (19-20) and is preceded by the recitation of Akdamut, a special hymn written in Aramaic. Akdamut has 90 lines and details a debate between the Jewish people and the nations and tells of the reward that awaits the righteous in the next world. The Torah reading is followed by the festival Musaf. In some congregations, liturgical poems known as Azharot are recited as part of the Musaf. These are concerned with the 613 commandments. Certain Sephardi congregations recite the azharot as well as the Book of Ruth during the Minah service instead.
In the sixteenth century, the kabbalists instituted the custom of remaining awake the entire night of Shavuot and complied a lectionary known as Tikkun Leil Shavuot (Tikkun for Shavuot Eve), which comprises the first chapters of the sacred books and which is studied at the time. In time the custom of studying any subject of Jewish religious interest developed, but the observance is still known as Tikkun Leil Shavuot. Those who remain awake for the entire night recite the morning prayer service, Shaharit, at dawn. In Jerusalem, it has become customary to walk to the Western Wall for the entire morning service or at least for the Musaf, and since 1967, when Jerusalem was reunited, many thousands can be seen streaming into the Western Wall compound from all over the city. A very ancient custom is to eat dishes of milk and honey on Shavuot in keeping with the verse in Song of songs (4:11) that describes the Torah as "Honey and milk under your tongue."
"Sivan 2 is marked on the Jewish calendar as Yom HaMeyuchas ("Day of Distinction"); it was on this day that G-d told Moses -- when Moses ascended Mount Sinai for the first time -- to tell the people of Israel: "You shall be My chosen treasure from among all the nations, for all the earth is Mine. You shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation"
"The 2nd of Sivan is known as the yom ha-meyuhas, the day of importance, coming as it does between the first of the month (Rosh Hodesh), a semi-holiday, and the Three Days of Restriction. In some communities, the Sabbath prior to Shavuot is known as the Sabbath of the Bride…"
This Year – 2011 - The 2nd of Sivan – June 4 – is a Sabbath Day…
