The Jewish holiday Shavuot, recognized seven weeks after Passover, is a pilgrimage festival that celebrates the early summer grain harvest and the bestowal of the books of the Torah, the code of law, from G-d to Moses atop Mt. Sinai.

Today it is celebrated with rituals at the synagogue and the study of scripture, the decoration of homes with greenery, and the sharing of festival meals especially including milk and cheese products.
