Halocho #1583 - Ruth and Shavu'ot

This year - 5775 - Shavu'ot will be on Sunday.

Outside of Israel Shavu'ot will also be on Monday.

It's customary to read Megilat Ruth on Shavu'ot, between Hallel and the Torah Reading.

In Israel, Megilat Ruth will be read on Sunday and in the Diaspora most places will read Megilat Ruth on Monday.

One has to remember to leave a flame burning (like a Yahrzeit candle or gas range) from before Shabbat so that one can light the Yom Tov candles on Motzai Shabbat - Saturday night after dark.

וְנוֹהֲגִין לוֹמַר רוּת בְּשָׁבוּעוֹת 

P.S. Tonight & tomorrow (Tuesday) will be Rosh Chodesh Sivan. Don't forget יַעֲלֶה וְיָבוֹא in Birkat Hamazon and the Amida.
