Ultra Orthodox children march with Torah

JERUSALEM, : Ultra Orthodox children march with Torah scrolls at Mea Shearim neighborhood in Jerusalem 31 May 2006 during celebration of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. Shavuot, one of Judaism's three pilgrimage festivals (along with Passover and Sukkot), will take place this year between sunset on 01 June, and sunset on 02 June . Shavuot marks the giving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai, seven weeks after the exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt. Indeed, Shavuot literally means "weeks" and is celebrated exactly seven weeks after the first day of Passover, which marks the exodus itself.
