This Week’s Torah Tidbit: Shavuot
On Shavuot we Celebrate the giving of the Torah, the most wonderful gift God had gave us, God’s teaching. The Torah is what guides us and unites us as a community as a people. We left Egypt in order to receive the Torah – the teaching of Adonai.
The legend tells us that when God was ready to give us the Torah, and was all excited to begin the covenant relationship with the people of Israel, we were sleeping. This is why we stay awake late at night on the eve of Shavuot and study Torah. Happy Shavuot to us all.
