- Shavuot Family Activities and Resource Packet – Shavuot is an important but little-known holiday. It commemorates the time of the barley harvest in Israel and the receiving of the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai. Shavuot takes place seven weeks after the second day of Passover, and it’s a tradition to eagerly count the Omer – the period of time between the anniversary of our freedom from slavery and the anniversary of the giving of the Torah. On Shavuot, our ancestors would show their gratitude to God by bringing an offering of the first fruits of their harvest. Shavuot is a time to celebrate spring, the outdoors, and the Torah – what’s not to love? Compiled by Rabbi Cara Weinstein Rosenthal, METNY’s “Building Our Jewish Home” Coordinator.
