Shavuot Holiday Break!

The Jewish holiday of Shavuot starts tonight.

It's the celebration of the giving of the Torah.

In the Diaspora it runs from tonight until Thursday night and in Israel it's a one-day deal from tonight to Wednesday night.

We read the Book of Ruth and eat lots of dairy products, cheese cake and such. There are all-night Torah learning sessions as well.

Read all about it. 

Thus, blogging will be sporadic for the next couple of days.
