Shavuot for the year 2006 starts on Friday, June 2nd ending the two day holiday at sundown on Saturday, June 3rd. For the Jewish calendar night begins before day, thus the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Thursday, June 1st.


Shavuot in Israel with the Hebrew calendar falls on Sivan 6-7 each year, but have a different date each year on the Gregorian calendar. Shavuot is a two day festival. The festival marks the wheat harvest in Israel and commemorates the day God gave the Torah to Israel on Mount Sinai.

Why do Jewish holidays start at nighttime?

According to the Torah, the story of creation in Genesis says “And it was evening, and it was morning day one”, “And it was evening, and it was morning; the second day”, thus night comes before day. So for the Jewish calendar all days begin at nightfall and end the next day at nightfall including holidays.
