Shavuot –Begins sunset of  Tuesday, May 30, 2017  | Ends nightfall of  Thursday, June 1, 2017

Shavuot falls on the Jewish calendar fifty days after Passover Sabbath. It is the second of three major feasts unto the Lord and holds both great agricultural and historical significance. It is sandwiched in between Passover and the Feast of Booths, or Sukkot. Its historical background commemorates the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai, and Shavuot’s agricultural significance is connected with the harvesting of the first fruits that were brought to the Temple annually. Leviticus 23:15-17 and Exodus 34:22
