Shavuot means "weeks" and occurs seven weeks and one day from the second night of Passover. It is a harvest holiday marking the transition from barley to wheat. The rabbis marked the occasion as the anniversary of the Israelites receiving the Torah at Mt. Sinai. In modern times, rituals include honoring students upon their graduation from religious school, reading the Book of Ruth, decorating the synagogue with flowers and eating dairy foods.

Included in the celebration of these two holidays will be a ceremony to confer Jewish names. "What is a rite?

Antoine de Saint-Exupery from The Little Prince.
