2018 Shavuot Holiday Guide

Shavuot

שבועות

Shavuot 2018 begins the evening of Saturday, May 19

Shavuot means “weeks.” It marks the completion of the seven-week counting period, the Omer, between Passover and Shavuot. One of the three pilgrimage holidays mentioned in the Torah, it celebrates both the harvest of the first fruits and the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai over 3,000 years ago.

It is customary to eat dairy foods on the first day of Shavuot. Menus range from traditional cheese blintzes to quiches, casseroles and more. Here are some of our favorites.
