Chag Sameach Shavuot

In a few hours, the sun will set and it will be the Festival of Shavuot, commemorating the giving of the Ten Commandments and indeed, the entire Torah at Mt. Sinai, seven weeks after the departure from Egypt.

Though the holiday has fallen into disuse amongst many modern day, secular American Jews, it is one of the most important holidays of the year. That is why my family and I keep the holiday.

Here's wishing everyone a happy and healthy Shavuot!

Chag Sameach to all!
