Shavuot

Shavuot has come and gone. The Omer is completely counted. The Jews have once again received the Torah.

There are two days of Shavuot, each with its own assigned readings. On the first day we read Megillat Ruth (The Scroll of Ruth) and the Torah portion that tells of the Mount Sinai revelation and the giving of the Ten Commandments. On the second day, we read the section of the Torah in which we are commanded to count the Omer and observe this holiday of Shavuot.

I wasn't sure what I would post tonight until I sat down tonight, but now I have a question: What is Sinai? Is it a place, a time, a state of mind, something else? Judaism teaches that Sinai is experienced in every generation. Where is it, and how do I get there?

About Me

My photo
I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
