This Wednesday and Thursday we celebrate the festival of Shavout. Shavuot commemorates the anniversary of the day the Torah was given to the entire nation of Israel assembled at Mount Sinai , although the association between the giving of the Torah and Shavuot is not explicit in the Bible. The holiday is one of the Shalosh Regalim, the three Biblical pilgrimage festivals. It marks the conclusion of the Counting of the Omer.
