Tuesday in Israel.. wait, how is it Thursday night already??

this is Rachel, and we're back at Merhavya after a whirlwind two-day tour of Jerusalem. I don't remember the last time I was this tired at only 9.30 at night! I'll try to post tomorrow, because there is no way I'll make any sense if I try now. Lilah tov, y'all!


  1. Lisa and I were wondering when Shavuot is celebrated in Israel? Are there different dates used by different groups?

  2. As far as I know, most of the Jews celebrated on Tuesday. I'm sure there are some that use other dates, but most of them use the Sanhedrin date.

  3. Just adding a note: I learned that they kept everyone off the Temple Mount on Tuesday and Wednesday so there wouldn't be any incidents of violence. Yes it is one day here; the traditional date. I am sure there are also others who use sighted moon dates but we aren't among them here.
    They probably aren't very public about it either.
