Shavuot is a Hebrew word meaning ‘weeks’ and refers to the Jewish festival marking the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. Shavuot, like so many other Jewish holidays began as an ancient agricultural festival, marking the end of the spring barley harvest and the beginning of the summer wheat harvest. Shavuot was distinguished in ancient times by bringing crop offerings to the Temple in Jerusalem. Shavuot marks the anniversary of our receiving God’s teachings at Mt. Sinai long ago and is one of the three Pilgrimage Festivals – along with Passover and Sukkot. Known as “the Festival of Weeks,” Shavuot takes place seven weeks after the beginning of Passover. Please join us as we stand once again at Mt. Sinai and read The Ten Commandments from the Book of Exodus. Chag Sameach!
