Shavuot for the year 2022 starts on the evening of Saturday, June 4th ending the two day holiday at sundown on Monday, June 6. For the Jewish calendar night begins before day, thus the holiday or festival begins on the sunset of the previous day.


Shavuot is a two day festival and begins on the 6th day of Sivan and ends on the 7th day except for many practicing Jews in Israel it ends on the 6th day of Sivan (1 Day celebration). Since the Torah does not actually state an official date for Shavuot there are some disputes among traditional and non-traditional Jews about which date the festival should fall on. 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.
