    What is Shavuot?
    Shavuot commemorates the day the Torah was given by G‑d to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai more than 3300 years ago. Every year on the holiday of Shavuot we renew our acceptance of G‑d’s gift, and G‑d "re-gives" the Torah. It is celebrated by reading the Ten Commandments and includes customs such as studying all night and eating dairy foods.

    The word Shavuot means "weeks." It marks the completion of the seven-week counting period between Passover and Shavuot.

    The giving of the Torah was a far-reaching spiritual eventâ€"one that touched the essence of the Jewish soul for all times. Our sages have compared it to a wedding between G‑d and the Jewish people. Shavuot also means "oaths," for on this day G‑d swore eternal devotion to us, and we in turn pledged everlasting loyalty to Him.

    The holiday of Shavuot is a two-day holiday, beginning at sundown of the 5th of Sivan and lasting until nightfall of the 7th of Sivan
