Anyone who has been in Hebrew Roots for a while is likely to have run across someone who claims Thanksgiving--like Christmas and Easter--is pagan.
To the religious leadership in first century Israel, Satan’s greatest lie was–and still is–that Yeshua was not their promised Messiah.
I recently read an article in Wikipedia about the Hebraic Roots movement, and found it mostly accurate.
Acts 20:7 Says What? False teaching (through either ignorance or in some cases duplicity) has led to many church doctrines that are–simply put–NOT founded on Scripture.

Just when you thought you were getting a handle on the Feasts of YHVH, along comes another holy day that depends on how you count! What is it about Hebrew Roots that makes me count all the time? First, I had to learn to count to three because it is impossible for the crucifixion to have taken place on a Friday (good or otherwise) with a resurrection on Sunday and fulfill the sign of Jonah that Yeshua spoke about! I mean, seriously, you cannot get three days and three nights from Friday to Sunday morning, no matter how you slice it! So, if the church I grew up in cannot even count to three, why would I think that they have it right when they teach about Pentecost? Or, more accurately, Shavuot! Have you been counting the omer? WHAT’S AN OMER? And why do we count them? Shavuot was originally an agricultural festival when the new grain was offered to YHVH.

Deity Of Yeshua: Son of God/Son of Man Beware of the false doctrine propagated by some in the Hebrew Roots movement which denies that the Messiah, Yeshua, is deity.
