About Shavuot

Shavuot (also known as Shavuos) is a Jewish festival that falls on the sixth day of the Hebrew month of Sivan, 50 days after Passover. Shavuot celebrates God giving the Torah to the Nation of Israel at Mount Sinai. It was traditionally tied to the end of the grain harvest, so an offering of bread was made in the Temple of Jerusalem.
