Shavuot is celebrated seven weeks after the second Passover Seder. This year, Shavuot begins at sundown on Thursday, May 28 and ends at sundown on Saturday, May 30. Shavuot is celebrated to commemorate the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. Traditionally an ancient grain harvest festival, Shavuot today features many customs, such as reading the Book of Ruth, eating dairy foods and staying up all night studying Jewish texts (called a tikkun).
This year, celebrate the holiday with these virtual events and create new traditions with your family!
In these unprecedented times come learn with Pearlstone!
Learn about the wheat harvest, bread making, ancient Torah wisdom and more. We look forward to seeing you at the top of the mountain.
