The holiday of Shavout is celebrated 50 days after Passover and is the anniversary of the day that G-d give the Torah (Bible) and Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai. It is the culmination of the Exodus from Egypt. Shavout is also called the Festival of weeks since it is traditional to count the seven weeks from Passover to Shavout in anticipation of receiving the Torah. Many have the custom to eat Dairy foods on Shavout. The book of Ruth is read in the synagogue. Like any Sabbath, each meal is started with Kiddush over wine followed by the eating of two loafs of challah. This year Shavout is celebrated on May 19 and 20.
Challah is a special braided bread eaten by most Jews on the Sabbath and holidays. According to Jewish tradition, each Sabbath and holiday meal begins with a blessing over two loaves of bread. This "lechem mishneh" (double loaf) represents the double serving of manna that fell from the heavens in honor of Sabbath and holidays when the Israelites traveled through the desert after the Exodus from Egypt. The manna is a symbol of prosperity and contentment. Traditionally, each challah is constructed from six braids (12 total for the two challahs). These represent the twelve loaves of show-bread arranged weekly in the Holy Temple. This also is a sign of wealth and prosperity.
