Shavuos

Tuesday, 4th June 2019

Dvar Torah - Shovuous

 

Did we really receive the Torah on Shavuos? Let's ruin the party, we did not get the Torah on Shavuos. 

Bnei Yisrael (the children of Israel) sinned with the egel hazahav (golden calf) and we did not get the Torah until the following Yom Kippur. So what are we commemorating on Shavuos? 

When Moshe (Moses) warns Bnei Yisrael not to forget Sinai (Devorim 4), he reminds them not to forget the spectacle of the lightning, thunder, and awe-striking ceremony they saw. Why does he not tell them not to forget the giving of the Ten Commandments themselves? 

The answer is that standing by Har (Mount) Sinai was to instil in us yiras HaShem (the fear of G-d), and that comes before Torah, for it dictates our ability to receive and forge a connection with the Torah and its Giver. This is what Moshe is warning the people not to forget, for it is the key to Torah.

So although we did not get the Torah until Yom Kippur, on 6th Sivan we became worthy to receive yiras HaShem - and this is what we relive on Shavuos.
