Receiving Our Torah ~ Shaping Our Torah
On Erev Shavuos, there is a custom of bringing in the festival by staying up all night and studying Torah and other texts. By doing so, we actively celebrate the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai by receiving its light and wisdom and re-giving it to those around us.
I know that Erev Shavuos is a Tuesday, that this is not a perfect world, and that for many of us, there are things you need to do the following day that might prevent you from staying up all night. Or maybe, you actually prefer to sleep at night. But if you can come for even just a little bit, your presence will make this event all the richer.
Check it out!
