Shavuot
Traditions:
LateVintage

The festival of Shavuot,
which will be celebrated May
27 and 28, has few special
rituals. Those which it does
h a v e says Encyclopedia
Judaica, are of late origin,
and many were established
in the present generation.
Shavuot marks the end of
the barley and the beginning
of the wheat harvest and, ac-
cording to the Bible, is con-
sequently nothing but an
agricultural festival. The
earliest clear reference to
Shavuot as the anniversary
of the giving of the Tablets
of the Law says the E/J,
date to the Third Century CE
The harvest associations no
longer had much meaning
once the Temple was des-
troyed, and there are ob-
viously no biblical cere-
monies connected with the
giving of the Torah since this
motif is post-biblical.
In the synagogue it is cus-
tomary to read the Book of
Ruth on Shavuot. Among the
reasons given are: that the
events recorded in Ruth took
place at harvest time; that
Ruth was the ancestor of
D a v i d who, traditionally,
dies on Shavuot; that Ruth's
"conversion" to Judaism is
appropriate reading for the
festival which commemo-
rates the giving of the Torah;
and that Ruth's loyalty is
symbolic of Israel's loyalty
to the Torah.
In Israel's kibutzim,. says
the E/J, Shavuot is cele-
brated as "Hagigat ha-Biku-
rim," the Festival of - the
First Fruits, a name which
appears in the Bible. Kibutz
celebrations originated in the
1920s and 1930s as an attempt
to recapture the "ancient
Hebrew" — mainly the agri-
cultural — character of Jew-
ish holidays.
The Festival of the First
Fruits marks the peak of the
first grain harvest and the
first ripe fruits. The seven
species mentioned in the
Bible (wheat, barley, vines,
pomegranates, olive trees, fig
trees, and honey) are repre-
sented graphically as well as
through song and dance.
There are also mass rallies
to bring offerings of first
fruits to the Jewish National
Fund.
In some medieval commun-
ities it was customary to
introduce children to the He-
brew school on Shavuot, the
season of the giving of the
Torah.
