Shavuot (Hebrew: שבועות) is the festival of weeks (Pentecost) falling on the fiftieth day after the first day of Passover. Shavuot celebrates the Israelites receiving the Torah at Mount Sinai. It is one of the three foot festivals, the others being Passover and Succot (Tabernacles), in which the Jewish men used to go by foot to the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, Israel.
Shavuot is also called Chag Habikurim, or Festival of the First Fruit. This commemorates Jewish inhabitants of Israel bringing their first fruits to the Temple and offered sacrifices. Shavuot is observed on the 6th of Sivan (May/June) for one day in Israel and for two in the Diaspora.
