Is Shavuot A Made-Up Holiday? Hint: No

Many secular Jews don’t know much about the festival of Shavuot. Years ago, I even had a congregant refer to it as ‘one of those made-up holidays’! Well, I can assure you Shavuot is not a made-up holiday, and if you’d like to learn a bit about it, this cheesy video will do the trick.

B’ahava,
