Shavuot 5784

Shavuot 5784

In 2024, Shavuot starts on Tuesday, June 11th in the evening.

Shavuot is both an agricultural festival, celebrating the spring barley harvest, and a commemoration of the giving of the torah at Mt Sinai. Today, it is a celebration of Torah, education, and the choice to participate actively in Jewish life.

Today, some of the ways many people mark Shavuot are:

  • Participating in a study vigil called a Tikkun Leil Shavuot
  • Reading the book of Ruth
  • Decorating the home with spring flowers and greenery
  • Eating sweet dairy foods, like blintzes and cheesecake

Check out our Shavuot events below!

Note that the Community Tikkun Leil Shavuot is not held at CRC, but we are thrilled to participate in it again this year. Look for classes taught by CRC rabbis and staff, or try something new!
