The day after the first day of Passover is the Feast of Firstfruits where the wave offering of new grain is celebrated. This is the barley harvest and is commanded in Leviticus 23:11. Then there is the commandment to count 50 days and offer a second offering. This is Shavuot which is commonly known as Pentacost among Christians. This festival is the wheat harvest and marks the end of the harvest season of grain. The second harvest festival is known is Succot. This is the fruit harvest festival and is also known as the Feast of Tabernacles to Christians. It takes place in the fall season after Rosh HaShannah and Yom Kippur. It is eight days long and during that time Jews are commanded to live in temporary shelters known as Sukkas. It is also one of the three traveling feasts as Jews were commanded to come to the Temple to sacrifice at that time. The directions for the feast are given in Leviticus 23:34-43.
