Shavuot (Shavu'ot, Festival of Weeks) celebrates the giving of the Torah by Moses at Mount Sinai. It is also the first day that fruits can be harvested and brought to the Temple. The date is determined by counting 7 weeks from the second day of Passover.
Celebrating this holiday can include staying up all night to study the Torah and praying in the morning, consuming dairy products, decorating with greeneries, and hosting Confirmation for tenth graders.
