    on Mount Sinai after Passover, Shavuot recalled God’s revelation of His will to the … Pentecost is typically known as “Zeleni Sviata” or the Green Holy Day.
    This feast has been observed in the Church since the time of the Apostles. On Pentecost, both the homes of the faithful and the churches were traditionally decorated with green branches and green flowers. The feast is also known as “Zeleni Sviata” or Green Holy Day for this reason.

    The custom of decorating the homes and churches with green branches is very old. It is rooted in the Jewish custom to adorn their homes with greens in remembrance of the Law which God gave them on Mount Sinai through Moses.

    In days past, the day after Pentecost was a holy day of obligation in the Greek and Byzantine Rite . Pentecost Monday is currently celebrated as a simple holy day. Attendance at a Divine Liturgy is encouraged but not obligatory.

    Is Shavuot A Day When Jew-es-s Become Bar-t Mitzvah? We catholics display Confirmation at Pentecost: When the Holy Spirit came youngs are lead to hold Him. This is an analogy? Jews and Jewess become bnai mitzvah – they become holders of the Law – when the Law was given by God to Moses for be given to Israel? It should have sense

      Nope, Shavuot has nothing to do with a Bar/Bat mitzvah (unless the person in question happens to have been born at that time so it is when they turn 13/12). Shavuot is about the NATION of Israel receiving the Torah and entering into a covenant with G-d. We celebrate it as a nation, all of us reliving the receiving of the Torah on Har Sinai

      A Bar/Bat Mitzvah becomes an adult required to perform the mitzvot at the age of 13 years and ine day if a boy (Bar Mitzvah) and 12 years and one day if a girl (Bat Mitzvah). Ceremonies etc are a moden invention and have no religious significane. In the past the days were not celebrated with elaborate parties etc, the only differene would be that on his Bar Mitzvah (or at the next possible time) the boy would be calle dup to read from the Torah which indicated tpo the community that he was a Bar Mitzvah. Nothing more, no parties, presents etc
