"Shavuot" (the feast of the Weeks) commemorates the giving of the ten commandements by God to Moses and the israelites on Mt. Sinai. It also celebrates the concluding festival of grain harvest which begins at Passover. In addition, it is known as the holiday of the first fruit. It is customary on this holiday, among other things, to eat dairy foods, and read the book of Ruth.
The green little village looked very festive with its balloon and ribbon decorations, posters and agricultural exhibits. The atmosphere was one of great joy and fun.
The happening ended in the late evening hours with a rich artistic program (songs, dances, declamations) performed by the youth living and studying in the village.
Do watch my video! Enjoy the sight of the dances on the stage (at the end).
