Shavuot and the nations

The Feast of Weeks (Shavuot) is also known as the Festival of Receiving the Torah (Yoma 4b) as well as the Festival of First Fruits [1] (Ex. 34:22). But while the name Hag Matan Torateinu is deeply ingrained in the
consciousness of observant Jews and finds expression in the rules and customs associated with the festival, the
second theme, the Festival of First Fruits (Hag Ha-Bikkurim), remains in the dark, with no practical expression given to it among the devout Jewish community.
