Celebrate Shavuot

Celebrate Shavuot

Shavuot means “weeks.” It marks the completion of the seven-week counting period, the Omer, between Passover and Shavuot. One of the three pilgrimage holidays mentioned in the Torah, it celebrates both the harvest of the first fruits and the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai over 3,000 years ago.
