Why are there no events on Sunday?

On Sunday, May 24, in celebration of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, the J is closed. Shavuot is a major Jewish festival which commemorates the giving of the Jewish law known as the Torah (including the ten commandments) to Moses on Mt. Sinai.

Shavuot also has agricultural significance as we thank God for the bounty of the spring harvest, evident by the Shavuot ritualwhen Jews living in ancient Israel brought their first fruits to the Temple in Jerusalem to show appreciation to God.

On this holiday it is a tradition to eat dairy foods, read the biblical Book of Ruth and take part in study of sacred Jewish texts.
