Shavuot is a celebration of the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai — when G-d and Israel sealed their covenant. The holiday is often marked by staying up all night studying Torah and eating dairy foods to show dedication to the laws of the Torah (including kashrut). This year, we may not be able to gather all night in person, but that doesn’t mean the learning will stop. Organizations across the globe invite you to Shavuot learning programs before, during, and after the holiday — including a few all-nighters.
