Sunday is Shavuot – the Feast of Weeks!

Tuesday, June 07, 2016 |  Israel Today Staff
The Jewish festival of Shavuot has many facets: the Feast of Weeks – 7 weeks being counted from Passover, or the Harvest Festival. Tradition has it that the Torah was given to the children of Israel via Moses by God on this day. In Israel this festival is a happy day when Torah is traditionally studied through the night and mainly dairy foods are consumed.
“And thou shalt keep the commandments of Jehovah thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him. For Jehovah thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, and vines and fig-trees and pomegranates; a land of olive-trees and honey; Deut 8:6-8
