Celebrate Shavuot!

Shavuot , the “Feast of Weeks,” is celebrated seven weeks after Passover (Pesah). Shavuot combines two major religious observances. First is the grain harvest of the early summer. Second is the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai seven weeks after the exodus from Egypt. There are a number of customs associated with this holiday. Among them is the tradition of participating in a Tikkun Leil Shavuot, a late-night study session marking the holiday. It is also customary to eat dairy products as part of the celebration of Shavuot.
