Shavuot 5782

Of all the Jewish holidays, Shavuot is likely the least well known. This is probably due to the lack of home ritual to rival building a Sukkah or hosting a Passover Seder. However, Shavuot has plenty of its own merits! At the start of each summer, this festival joins Sukkot and Passover with the third installment of the Exodus narrative. The Israelites leave Egypt during Passover, travel in small temporary shelters during Sukkot, and arrive, on Shavuot, at Mount Sinai in time to receive the Ten Commandments. Below you will find see the ways Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation is celebrating Shavuot this year.
