What is the Holiday of ShavuotTorah 2?

Luchos (3)Shavuot is the second of the three major festivals (Passover being the first and Sukkot the third) and comes exactly fifty days after Passover. The Torah was given by G‑d to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai over 3,300 years ago. Every year on this day we renew our acceptance of G‑d's gift.

The word Shavuot means "weeks": It marks the completion of the seven weeks between Passover and Shavuot (the 'Omer' period) during which the Jewish people prepared themselves for the giving of the Torah. During this time they cleansed themselves of the scars of slavery and became a holy nation ready to enter into an eternal covenant with G‑d with the giving of the Torah.

Shavuot also means "oaths", with the giving of the Torah, the Jewish people and G‑d exchanged oaths, forming an everlasting covenant, not to forsake one another.
