Shavuot – The Feast of Weeks

7 weeks after Pesach (Passover) comes the Feast of Weeks, also sometimes mentioned as Pentecost, its roots are likely to be found in a grain harvest festival. Although its religious significance is connected to the Exodus of the Jewish people from the Egyptian captivity, and marking the date when Moses was handed the Torah on Mount Sinai, marking also the birth of Jewish consciousness, entering a covenant and pact with God. It is a time of rejoice where God and Israel enter a symbolic marriage. This day is celebrated in synagogues, and special reading such as the Piyyutim and the Book of Ruth followed by an all night study session of the holy texts.
