The word Shavuot means “Weeks.” It marks the completion of the seven weeks between Passover and Shavuot during which the Jewish people prepared themselves for the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai.
Some customs of the Shavuot holiday include the decoration of homes and synagogues with fragrant flowers and greenery in honor of the beautiful blooms that grew on Mt. Sinai.
Another custom includes an all-night Torah study on the first night of Shavuot, and eating dairy foods such as cheese cake, cheese blintzes, etc.
Chabad is at 30804 Coast Hwy.
