What hapns in Shavuot?

Shavuot is one of the three annual Jewish pilgrimage festivals. Before the year 70, all Jews were commanded to go to the Temple in Jerusalem for these festivals. Shavuot is also called Pentecost because it occurs 50 days after Passover, and it is called the Feast of Weeks. Shavuot is a harvest festival (the winter wheat harvest), and it commemorates the revelation of the Torah to Moses at Mount Sinai. In addition to the festival liturgy, Shavuot is frequently observed by eating dairy meals -- lots of cheese dishes and cheesecake, and by all-night Torah study sessions. In modern times, the Reform movement has created confirmation ceremonies on Shavuot honoring students who have continued their religious education beyond bar mitzvah age.

Shavuot is recognized as a festival by all branches of Judaism, Orthodox, Reform, Conserviative. However, of the three pilgrimage festivals, it is the most frequently ignored. (Despite the good food, since cheesecake is a traditioinal food for Shavuot.)

Even so it is probable that more Orthodox Jews take Shavuot seriously.

How do you celebrate shavuot?

Shavuot is celebrated 50 days after the first night of Pesach (Passover) and therefore known as Pentecost. The name also means weeks, because it is traditional to count a week of weeks, 7 times 7, counting every evening. At the end of the 49th count, it is Shavuot. Like all 3 Jewish pilgrimage festivals, the liturgy includes an abbreviated evening service (so that people can get home to their evening festival meal) and an expanded morning service that resembles the Sabbath morning service with the full Hallel (psalms of praise) added in. It is also traditioinal to read the Book of Ruth on Shavuot. Shavuot is a harvest festival, but it also celebrates the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai, so one tradition is an all-night study session, ending with a morning service at dawn. Finally, it is traditional to celebrate Shavuot with dairy foods. Blintzes, cheesecake and similar foods are popular. The Reform movement encourages congregations to use Shavuot to celebrate confirmation, a new invention in the Jewish world, commonly a celebration of those children who have continued to attend religious school after the age of bar mitzvah.
