Shavuot is a Holiday that commemorates one of the most important events in Jewish history – when the Torah was given to us at Mount Sinai. To learn more about the holiday, check out our Shavuot Survival Guide.
The main traditions of this holiday are eating dairy foods and studying all night in the synagogue.
Shavuot is next Saturday night 19th May. There are lots of pre-Shavuot tasting events next week, and then lots of cool meetups next weekend. Keep scrolling down for the Best Events for Shavuot 2018 in Tel Aviv, or click here for full list of events.
