Happy Shavu’ot!!

Shavuot celebrates the beginning of the wheat harvest and, according to the Bible, any sheaves or stalks of grain that fall to the ground while the field owner’s reapers are working must be left for the poor.

Counting and Recounting

According to the biblical commandment, the days and the weeks between the second day of Passover, when an Omer (a sheaf, or measure of grain) from the new barley harvest is brought to the Temple, until the festival of Shavuot, must be numbered.
