Tomorrow Night: Shavuot- My Favorite Jewish Holiday Posted By: Yidwithlid 5/25/2012 7:36:09 PM The Lid, by Jeff Dunetz Original Article
Tomorrow night begins Shavuot, the most meaningful (to me) and favorite of Jewish holidays. It commemorates that incredible day when God gave the newly freed Jews the Ten Commandments and the Torah.
People living in the US, might think that Chanukah is the major Jewish holiday, actually it is a very minor holiday. Shavuot is one of the three major festivals (the other two are Passover and Sukkot). In biblical days, Jews would travel from all over the Holy Land to Jerusalem to make a sacrifice at the Holy Temple on those three festivals.
