What is Shavuot?

Shavuot marks the date when Gā€‘d gave the Torah to the Jewish people at Mount Sinai  3,333 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.
