Shavuot; The BIG Event

The Holiday of Shavuot (the holiday celebrating our receiving the Torah on Mount Sinai)is one of the major Jewish Holidays of the year it is on the same level as Passover, it is actually connected to the holiday of Passover.

What is it about?

It’s about us and G‑d. The Torah is a book written by G‑d about G‑d and G‑d shared that book with us so that you and I could have the deepest relationship possible.

That special moment took place at Mount Sinai, 3330 years ago. Every year we relive the awesome and BIG event that changed our lives and our destiny forever.

The holiday begins on May 19th at Sundown.  Click here for our full online holiday guide.

Celebrating as a community always adds to the holiday joy and makes it more meaningful and memorable.
