Aren’t calendars wonderful, admittedly my Far Side desktop calendar isn’t exactly a fountain of wisdom but does help open my eyes on some dates (officially started yesterday).

“Shavuot, the Feast of the Weeks, is the Jewish holiday celebrating the harvest season in Israel.

Shavuot also commemorates the anniversary of the giving of the Ten Commandments to Moses and the Israelites at Mount Sinai.”
