History, Traditions of Shavuot

Shavuot is observed following 50 days of the Jewish Passover – a celebration of the day when God redeemed the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. God gave the Torah – the first part out of the five parts of the Jewish bible – to the nation of Israel at Mount Sinai. The story goes like this: According to the Torah, following the exodus from Egypt, the Israelites travelled from Egypt to Mount Sinai in seven weeks. Shavuot means “sevens” or “weeks,” hence it is also called the Feast of Weeks.

Shavuot is also said to have its bearings in an ancient grain harvest festival where the first fruits of the harvest and two loaves of bread made from the new wheat were offered at the temple. This tradition is still followed at the synagogue and read the Torah. 

 Every year, jews commemorate the day by abstaining from work, lighting candles, staying up all night, having festive meals containing dairy foods and a visit to the synagogue ( Jewish church) to listen to the readings from the Torah. The Book of Ruth – one of five parts of the Jewish bible – that highlights the woman’s choice to join the Jewish people and accept the Torah is one of the books read on Shavuot. The customary way to greet each other during Shavuot is “Chag Sameach!”
