Shavuot is the festival which celebrates when God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses at Mount Sinai. Shavuot is Hebrew for “weeks,” and this holiday symbolizes the seven weeks during which the Israelites traveled through the desert after their Exodus from Egypt. This holiday marks the fourth and final time during the Jewish calendar when we say Yizkor prayers.
