We were on that Mountain!

Chazal teach us that our neshamos were there on that mountain during the giving of the Torah. Therefore, we are simply rejuvenating our memories when we think about Shavuos. In fact, the entire Torah was even taught to all of us before birth according to the Medresh. Since this is the case, let the Torah and the holiday of Shavuos be something near to you…

Tomorrow, I want you to close your eyes and picture Moshe, Moses giving you the Torah. I want you to see Lightning and to feel the thunder as the Torah was given. I want you to see the luchos, ten commandments as black fire on white fire. There is no limit to the faith and acceptance of the Torah you can precieve on this day. Many Rabbis went through weeks of preparation just to experience on Shavuos a true light like it was the day we were given the Torah but even this is not necessary. So close are we too this revelation, since as stated, “we were there”, that every Jew can re-experience the giving of the Torah on this day with even minimal effort.


  1. OMEIN!!!!

  2. Rebbe Nachman says that if you go to the mikvah on shavuos, you draw from the 50th gate of wisdom.

    I went to meron and then to the grave of chamnuna saba who was the gilgul of Moshe Rabbenu. I had everyone in mind.

    A great shavuos to you all!
