Chag Sameach (Happy Holiday)!
Holidays on the Net invites you to join us for our celebration of the Jewish festival of Shavuot.
Shavuot is celebrated exactly seven weeks after the second day of Passover, which explains the name of the holiday — it literally means “weeks”. Commemorating the ancient harvest of the first fruits, Shavuot also has important religious significance for the Jewish people: The holidays marks the anniversary of G-d giving the Israelites the Ten CommandmentsÂ on Mount Sinai.
Join us at Holidays on the Net to learn more about the unique religious customs and legends of Shavuot, including the tradition of eating dairy foods. Share the spirit of this early summertime holiday with your children, by making together Shavuot-themed crafts or cooking up a Shavuot feast in your kitchen.
This year, Shavuot will be celebrated from sundown on Sunday, June 8th until sunset on Tuesday, June 10th. In Israel, the holiday will conclude at sunset on June 9th.
We look forward to seeing you this Shavuot at Shavuot on the Net
