Shavuot!

Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach!

Tomorrow begins the holiday of Shavuot in Israel. Shavuot is translated as the Festival of Weeks. It's also known as the Harvest or Fruit Festival. This holiday celebrates the Israelites receiving the Torah approximately 3,400 years ago on Sinai Mountain (nowadays a popular Israeli vacation getaway in Egypt). It is celebrated 50 days after the 2nd day of Passover. 🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾

All of Israel goes vegetarian on Shavuot and Cheesecakes are made everywhere. If you visit during Shavuot, make sure to visit one of the many dairy farms in Israel. They are open to the public during this holiday to educate the public about how milk and cheese are made locally. Farms will show you how they harvest wheat, dates, figs and even how olive oil is made. 🐄🍇🧀🥛🍰

And be careful! On Shavuot, water fights are abound and if you're not careful, you may get wet! 💦💦💦
