Shavuot is just around the corner! The holiday, which arrives seven weeks after Passover, occurs on the 6th day of Sivan. Celebrated for two days in the States, Shavuot—which means “weeks” in Hebrew—this year falls on Friday, May 29, and Saturday, May 30. It’s both a harvest celebration commemorating the ripening of the first fruits of the spring harvest and it celebrates God’s gift of the Ten Commandments to the Jewish people.
