Our Wedding with HaShem

The Torah refers to the Holiday of Shabuot in two different ways: Shabuot – weeks,  and Atseret – cessation. Interestingly, though, it does not refer to Shabuot in the way that reflects what happened on this day, the giving of the Torah on Har Sinai.

Shabuot Laws & Customs 2015

1) This year Shabuot is on Sunday and Monday May 24 & 25, beginning on Saturday night. NO preparations may be done at all on Shabbat for the holiday.

2) All work is forbidden on the holiday, as on Shabbat.  Carrying necessary things and cooking for that day only are permitted.  Taking a fire from an existing flame is permitted, but striking a match is forbidden.  Lowering a flame is forbidden unless the cooking requires a lower flame.  If the stove is electric, turning it on from the 'off' position is prohibited.  Whether or not one may raise or lower the heat on an electric stove depends on the type of unit involved.  CONSULT THE RABBI.

3) All Night Reading - One of the special things we do on this holiday is to stay up the entire first night reading and studying Torah.  This is to show our eagerness to accept the Torah.  In our synagogue, we will have a special Tikun reading beginning Saturday night at 11:00 p.m. followed by stimulating classes.  Everyone is welcome.  There is an elaborate spread to help keep us awake.  An early Shaharit minyan will follow at 4:30 a.m.

4) Azharot - Our community has a beautiful custom to read the 613 Commandments in poetic form, known as the Azharot.  The first and last three paragraphs are read in the shul.

5) The Book of Ruth - Our custom is to read the whole book of Ruth during the two days of Shabuot, and we will discuss it in our class.  It will also be read in the shul.

6) Yehi Shem - No Tahanun is recited beginning Tuesday, May 19th thru Sunday, May 31st .

7) Lighting candles - On both nights of the holiday, two candles should be lit by the woman of the house. Candles for the second night should be lit from an existing flame according to the Shabuot time schedule. The beracha for both nights is Le’hadlik Ner Shel Yom Tob.
