Shavuot: More Than Just Cheesecake.

I'm leaving work in a few minutes, so this will be brief.

Shavuot is, as you all know, the holiday when we commemorate the giving of the Torah. Everyone has their minhagim for Shavout, but herels an idea:

Accept the Torah.

Tonight, accept the Torah because you chose to. Not because you were born into it. Accept it. Take it upon youself.

I'm going to do my darndest.

Chag Samayach.
