Shavuot
Start Date: 5/31/2017 All Day
End Date: 6/1/2017

Event Description:

Shavuot is a Jewish holy day with a double significance. It marks the all-important wheat harvest in the Land of Israel, and it commemorates the anniversary of the day God gave the Torah to the entire nation of Israel assembled at Mount Sinai. Shavuot is unlike other Jewish holidays in that it has no prescribed ritual observance, other than traditional festival meals and merriment; and the required abstention from work. However, it is characterized by many customs, including dairy-heavy dishes and all-night Torah study.
