Celebrating Israel

MILK AND HONEY: A CELEBRATION OF ISRAEL ON SHAVUOT

Shavuot marks the day that the Jewish people were given the Torah at Mount Sinai. On Passover, we left Egypt as free people, but it was only on Shavuot that we were made into a nation through the gift of the Torah. Shavuot honors the bringing of the first fruits to the Temple, and reminds us that this day, like all other Jewish festivals, is inextricably linked to our Jewish homeland.
