The holiday of Shavuos has multiple names - Chag Matan Torah (anniversary of the giving of the Torah on Har Sinai), Chag HaBikkurim (holiday of the first fruits) and Chag HaKatzir (the wheat harvest). Interestingly, neither the name Shavuos nor Chag Matan Torah are mentioned in the Torah. Join Rabbi Siddur to explore why that is.
