The Festival of Weeks is basically a harvest celebration. Historically, at this time of year the first fruits of the harvest were brought to the temples.

Shavuot also marks the time that the Jews were given the Torah on Mount Sinai. Shavuot is a time when we thank G-d for the Torah scrolls and the opportunity to study its scriptures.

During this time we decorate the synagogue with flowers and hold some form of discussion forum.
