Shavuot 2017

May 30 - June 1

The Torah was given by G‑d to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai more than 3300 years ago. Every year on the holiday of Shavuot we renew our acceptance of G‑d’s gift, and G‑d “re-gives” the Torah. Additionally, the word Shavuot means “weeks.” It marks the completion of the seven-week counting period between Passover and Shavuot. We commemorate the holiday by studying Torah all night and listen to the reading of the Ten Commandments on the first day of the holiday.  The holiday has a special focus on children as the Midrash teaches that the children are the guarantors of the Torah.
