Shavuot 2020 begins at sunset on Thursday, May 28 until nightfall on May 30. We celebrate G‑d giving us the Ten Commandments.

  • On Thursday Evening we light holiday candles and put in some extra hours of study.
  • On Friday we listen (or read) the Ten Commandments and eat some dairy food.
  • Prior to Shabbat we light Holiday/Shabbat Candles from a pre existing flame. [A yizkor candle may also be kindled then]
  • Yizkor is recited on Saturday - Shabbat.
