Revelations on Sinai: The Rational & Mystical 
We celebrate Shavuot by enjoying a holiday meal, lighting the candles and reciting the blessings.

At Shavuot we celebrate the special gift of Torah to the Jewish people. The words of Torah have been compared to milk and honey. Thus it became a tradition to eat dairy foods on this holiday.

There is a legend that when the Torah was revealed at Mt. Sinai, the mountain blossomed with beautiful flowers. To remind us of the beauty of Mt. Sinai and the beauty of Torah, we decorate our homes and synagogues with flowers and greenery.

During the Shavuot synagogue service there are two special readings: the section of the Torah that contains the Ten Commandments and the Book of Ruth.
