Shavuot / שבועות

The festival of Shavuot (or Shavuos, in Ashkenazi usage; Shabhuʿoth in Classical and Mizrahi Hebrew Hebrew: שבועות, lit. “Weeks”) is a Jewish holiday that occurs on the sixth day of the Hebrew month of Sivan (late May or early June). Shavuot commemorates the anniversary of the day God gave the Torah to the entire Israelite nation assembled at Mount Sinai, although the association between the giving of the Torah (Matan Torah) and Shavuot is not explicit in the Biblical text. The holiday is one of the Shalosh Regalim, the three Biblical pilgrimage festivals. It marks the conclusion of the Counting of the Omer.

Shavuot is also Pentecost when Yahweh sent the Holy Spirit to those who belong to Him.

Rosh Chodesh Sivan / ראש חודש סיון

images (50)

Beginning of new Hebrew month of Sivan. Sivan is the 3rd month of the Hebrew year. Corresponds to May or June on the Gregorian calendar.

At the head start of each month, I usually like to read about Jewish History, we are reviewing the Sivan in Jewish History.

Hebrew Month of Sivan

Like all of the other months in the Hebrew calendar, Sivan is the Babylonian name of the month. It roughly means ‘season’ or ‘time’ and contains 30 days.

Sivan contains the festival of Shavuot which literally means ‘weeks’ and is the time when the Jewish people received the Torah from Moses at Mount Sinai. This occurs on the 6th Sivan.

a) Another interesting event which took place during the month of Sivan was that the floods of Noach stopped and the waters started to recede.

Sivan is also used as a girl’s name in Israel.
