Top Ten Reasons to Celebrate Shavuot: Reason #9

The Forgotten Holiday – Why?

Shavuot is, as I have said before, tragically ignored by many of our congregants. I have at least three reasons why that might be:

  1. Usually falls after the Religious School year, so we barely get to teach it to our students
  2. It doesn't hold the same emotional impact as Pesach, and it isn't celebrated in the home
  3. It doesn't include the same meaningful visual object as Sukkot

Do you have any other ideas of why we might not focus enough on Shavuot?
