Shavuot

Shavuot, also known as The Festival of Weeks, is a Jewish holiday where the Jews celebrate the anniversary of when God gave the Torah to the Jewish People on Mount Sinai. The holiday is celebrated by eating mostly dairy foods, and learning the Torah late into the night on the first night of the holiday. It was one of the three Shalosh Regalim, the biblical pilgrimage holidays the Jewish People celebrate. Megillat Rut, or The Book of Ruth is read on this holiday.
