What is Shavuot?

Shavuot celebrates both the first fruits of the harvest as well as the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai.  On a visceral level it represents safety and security as we count each night from Passover to Shavuot hoping for a full harvest.  On a spiritual level it represents the climb out of Slavery in Egypt up to the heights of Mount Sinai and the Torah.  Some of the traditions of Shavuot include eating dairy, studying the Torah, and decorating our homes and sanctuaries with flowers or live vines.  If you’d like to dive deeper into the many layered meanings of Shavuot you can read here or email Rabbi Fruithandler.

Holidays at WJC
