Shavuot

Shavuot—or the Feast of Weeks—is a Jewish holiday, celebrated between June 11–13 on the Gregorian calendar. The holiday has both agricultural and biblical significance. Agriculturally, it marks the wheat harvest in Israel. Biblically, it commemorates the day God gave the nation of Israel the Torah.

About the event

The word ‘Shavuot’ or ‘Shavuos’ means ‘weeks.’ The holiday celebrates the completion of the seven-week Omer duration between Passover and Shavuot. God had gifted the Torah to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai more than 3,300 years ago. The occasion of Shavuot allows believers to renew their acceptance of this gift, and God blesses them once again with the Torah. The Feast of Weeks commemorates this revelation of the Torah on Mount Sinai and begins on the 50th day after the 49 days of counting the Omer.
