I was wondering as I hear it for the first time that one of my friend told me that they made a chupah(hung tallit gadol) above bimah on Shavuot.he told me its a custom that we do every year, but we never do it in our community. Can someone please tell me where this custom came and who apply it askenazi/shefardi or others? Or in short is there any signifance relayed to savuot should every community apply it?

  • No source, but it's supposed to be a symbol of the wedding between Hashem and 'Am Yisrael. In other words, it represents a chuppah. – Noach MiFrankfurt Jun 14 '16 at 2:07
