Shavu’ot begins on May 16, 2021

Shavu’ot is a Jewish agricultural holiday that takes place seven weeks after Passover. Shavua means week in Hebrew; shavu’ot means weeks. There is a Jewish tradition of daily counting – called the Omer – between Passover and Shavu’ot. On Shavu’ot we celebrate receiving the Torah, specifically the Ten Commandments. We study Torah, read the book of Ruth, and eat dairy foods.
