Celebrate Shavuot at Home

On Shavuot morning, 3,332 years ago, Heaven kissed Earth, and G‑d communicated the 10 Commandments upon Mount Sinai. Every year we relive that experience when we stay up all night and then read of this event from the Torah during Shavuot morning services.

This year, we’ll be studying, reading, and celebrating ourselves, as our own living spaces have become our places of worship.

After listening carefully to what you’ve requested, we have assembled how-to guides, study texts, inspiring essays, recipes and more, to help you make this the best Shavuot ever!

What is Shavuot?
Shavuot marks the date when G‑d gave the Torah to the Jewish people at Mount Sinai more than 3,300 years ago. It comes after 49 days of eager counting, as we prepared ourselves for this special day. It is celebrated by lighting candles, staying up all night to learn Torah, hearing the reading of the Ten Commandments in synagogue, feasting on dairy foods and more.
