THREE IS THE MAGIC NUMBERAchieving Harmony in the Face of Controversy

There’s something extremely satisfying about settling a dispute between two parties. Of course, it would be nice if everyone agreed about everything, but that’s just not happening. Or would that even be preferred? Apparently, when G‑d married heaven and earth in the present we called Torah, He taught us this: One is good, but to make two into one is even better. And that’s the magic of three .

 

 
On the day that the Jewish people were to receive the Torah on Mt. Sinai, they overslept!  To rectify this, on the first night of Shavuot the custom is to stay up all night and study Torah as we prepare to
renew our acceptance of G‑d's gift - the Torah

 

We Hope To see Your There!

What is Shavuot?


Shavuot, this year  starts Saturday evening May 19 until May 21 in the evening, marks the anniversary of the day when we received the Torah at Mount Sinai. It is the second of the three major festivals (Passover being the first, and Sukkot the third), occurring exactly fifty days after the second day of Passover. The word "Shavuot" means "weeks"; it marks the completion of the seven-week counting period between Passover and Shavuot. During these seven weeks, the Jewish people cleansed themselves of the scars of Egyptian slavery and became a holy nation, ready to enter into an eternal covenant with G‑d with the giving of the Torah.
