49 Days after Passover we celebrate the giving of the Torah. Originally an agricultural holiday, the first fruits were traditionally brought to the Temple. Biblically this is a celebration of the meeting of God with the Israelites, and the receiving of the Ten Commandments. Together we relive standing at Mount Sinai, and receiving anew God’s precious gift of Torah. We read the commandments and, play special music, and enjoy a special dairy meal of blintzes, cheeses and cheesecake.
