HR Photography Israël event photographer to enlight Shavuot holiday...

Shavuot falls on the 5th sivan in the Jewish calendar. The word Shavuot means "weeks".
This holiday marks the end of the seven-week period of what is known as the "Omer count" between Passover and Shavuot.
Indeed, the Torah was given by God to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai over 3,300 years ago.
Each year, during Shavuot, we renew our acceptance of this divine gift, and God "gives back" to us the Torah.

Also, the gift of the Torah was a huge spiritual event  which marked the essence of the Jewish soul for all eternity. Our Sages compare this spiritual event to a union between God and the Jewish people. Moreover, Shavuot means "oath" : on this day God made the oath of a perpetual alliance with the Jewish people.
In return, we swore to Him eternal fidelity .

on the  other hand, during  the first evening of  Shavuot there is a tradition for men to stay awake all the  night to studiy Torah . There is a custom during all- nighter to recite the text called "Tikoun of Shavuot" made up of extracts from many texts of the Torah.
In addition, we also have the custom of reading the Book of Ruth because King David  left this world  at Shavuot  ( He is  a descendant of Ruth the Moabite).
Men and women go to the synagogue on the first day of Shavuot to listen to the reading of the 10 Commandments given on Mount Sinai.

Finally, like the other holidays the Jewish calendar, festive meals are eaten and no "work" can be accomplished.
There is a custom to eat dairy dishes on Shavuot in remembrance of the Jewish people who ate dairy dishes after receiving the Torah over 3,300 years ago.
