Shavuot Sunset, June 3 – Evening, June 5
Shavuot, a Jewish holiday whose name literally means “weeks” is an ancient Jewish holiday with both agricultural and historical associations. It celebrates the end of the barley harvest and the start of the wheat harvest, while also serving as a reminder of the occasion when the ancient Israelites received the 10 commandments at Mount Sinai. The customs associated with the holiday include a tikkun leil Shavuot (Jewish mystical tradition of staying up all night studying Torah), eating dairy products and a public reading of the Biblical Book of Ruth.
