Each holiday has its special mitzvah that is unique to the respective festival (like shofar on Rosh Hashana, matzah on Passover etc.). Yet, it seems we don’t find in the Torah any particular mitzvah for Shavuot?!

Thank you Rabbi Raskin! beautiful Shiur,
you mentioned the "Vav" ; 3 components; being the numerical value 6, a shute and a hook,
I didn't hear the explanation of the "hook";
maybe the Torah "hooks " - connects us unto HaShem? is that the explanation? Reply
