This coming week, from Tuesday evening through Thursday night, is the holiday of Shavuos — the day of receipt of the Torah itself, at Mt. Sinai. Our Sages tell us that each holiday brings with it unique spiritual opportunities and energies, making this our annual opportunity to take the Torah as it is placed in our hands.
May we all be granted abundant blessings on our Torah learning throughout the year, stemming from this great and holy Day!
Good Shabbos, and Good YomTov,
Rabbi Yaakov Menken
Director, Project Genesis – Torah.org
