If the Torah was studied before it was given on Shevouth then when was it actually given to Israel? Reply

Shem and Eber sponsored a Torah Academy. IDK the reference for this; I picked it up along the way. Reply

in response to Bela Flom:

The Torah was given to the Yidden before but only spiritually not physically and it was more theoretical. The physical doing became important only after the Giving of the Torah on Har Sinai. (Although the Gemara in Megilah explains that the Yidden only fully accepted the Torah after the miracle of Purim) Reply
