I hope you are doing well, I've been praying for your job search.
I've checked the forums and haven't found an answer to my question so I'll ask. Of the three pilgramige festivals, was there a provision or exemption at the time of the diaspora for the Jews who were far away and couldn't get to Jerusalem? Obviously I'm speaking of the time prior to 70 AD.
Specifically I'm thinking about Paul being a Torah Observant Jew but there were obvious periods of years in his life when he didn't go up to Jerusalem to observe the feasts.
