Counting the Days

The days between Passover and Shavuos correspond to the Israelites’ journey from Egypt in the lead up to receiving the Torah at Sinai. The closer they came to their goal, the more their anticipation grew.

The days between Passover and Shavuos correspond to the Israelites’ journey from Egypt in the lead up to receiving the Torah at Sinai. The closer they came to their goal, the more their anticipation grew.

It should be no different today. Every year on Shavuos, we receive the Torah anew. And while we cannot bring the day any closer, our excitement does make a difference to the giving of the Torah when the auspicious time finally arrives.

God gives everyone all the necessary capabilities to carry out our positive resolutions in our daily lives with joy and inner meaning; with the deepest sincerity and enthusiasm to be found deep inside the soul – especially a Jewish soul.
