Shavuot Flower Crown

One of the loveliest traditions of Shavuot for girls and women is dressing in white and wearing flower crowns. In Ancient Israel, young unmarried maidens dressed in white and danced among the vineyards, hoping to be noticed by eligible young bachelors.


This custom is echoed today by the holiday attire. You can join in the fun by making your own fresh flower crown and wearing white during your Shavuot celebration.
