About the Book

Passover is seen Israel’s betrothal to God whereas Shavuot is considered the Wedding Anniversary of the Covenant between God and Israel sealed at Mount Sinai. The Ketubah or wedding contract was the Ten Commandments and Torah, Sephardic Jews often recite Hosea 2:19-20 at this time.

Shavuot marks the end of the barley harvest and the beginning of the wheat harvest. Counting the Omer (an Israelite unit of Temple measure for a sheaf) begins with a wave offering of barley and continues for 7 weeks until the wheat offering on Shavuot. Counting the Omer, is a verbal counting of each of the 49 days, representing spiritual preparation and anticipation of Torah lasting from Pesach until the 50th day, Shavuot (Deuteronomy 16:9-10).
