Shavuot: A Time To Celebrate The Lessons We Have Learned

Tomorrow night, we celebrate the holiday of Shavuot. According to Jewish tradition, it is on Shavuot that Moses climbed Mount Sinai and received not just the Ten Commandments, but the entire Torah. Contained within the Torah are hundreds of invaluable lessons that have the potential to make our lives more meaningful. In celebration of Shavuot, I encourage you to watch the short video posted below. It is from Soul Pancake and challenges us to think about some of the most important lessons that we’ve learned over the years. Interestingly enough, with the exception of the lesson about the Ford Probe, most of the lessons shared in the video can be found within the Torah. Given this, it is no surprise that more than 3,000 years after Moses received the Torah, we gather together on Shavuot to celebrate the moment we received the timeless lessons that continue to shape our lives and make us the people we are today
