Thank you!!! Reply

Rabbi, this explanation was likely the most simple and profound explanation of Shavuot I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. Thank You! Reply

I love your shares and look forward to them all The giving was wonderful wasn't it. And I understood all that you said and what your heart was beating out loud. To me, and to the Word Shavuot its not about the giving as you explained but about our receiving what was being set down before us to take. Matan... receiving! There were many, many, people there and not all took it. Even today, not all that it was giving to have taken it. Hebrew- Eberim, not from here but from over there, across Torah's water. Separated by the Water of Torah from the rest of the world because Abraham's people take Torah and eat! Reply
