Shavout, commemorates the anniversary of the day G-d gave the Torah to the entire Israelite nation assembled at Mount Sinai some 3,300 years ago. Traditionally individuals celebrate the holiday by engaging in learning. To honor this tradition, the JCC in partnership with the Agency for Jewish Learning and the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh hosts annual community-wide study sessions.
