Holiday Greetings: Happy Shavuot, Chag Shavuot Sameach from Bnei Yisrael Society #2023 #Shavuot #FestivalOfWeeks #FirstFruits #MattanTorah

Bnei Yisrael Society wishes all who observe a very Happy Shavuot, Chag Shavuot Sameach! Shavuot, also called the Festival of Weeks, is the second of the Shalosh Regalim (Three Pilgrimage Festivals) celebrated annually to commemorate YAH‘s giving of the Torah (Mattan Torah) to the Nation of Yisrael at Mount Sinai, seven weeks after our Exodus from Egypt.  Shavuot is also known as Yom HaBikkurim, Day of First Fruits, marking the beginning of the fruit harvest in the Land of Yisrael. The holiday is celebrated on the 6th of Sivan on the Hebrew calendar. In 2022 on the Gregorian calendar, Shavuot begins at sundown Saturday, June, 4, 2022 and ends at nightfall Sunday, June 5, 2022, in the Land of Yisrael, and nightfall Monday, June 6, 2022, outside of the Land of Yisrael.
