On Shavuot, we commemorate and celebrate “Matan Torah” – the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. This follows the seven weeks following Passover, known as the period of the Omer. We go from redemption to revelation, in our Jewish calendar, in a mere 7 weeks. The story of revelation that we find in Torah is mysterious and dramatic, and Jewish commentators have been trying to make sense of it for millennia. In this offering, we will explore texts both ancient and modern to guide us in finding contemporary relevance and insight about the meaning of Torah and how and when and why it was and still is revealed to us. When we come together to explore our tradition and to find meaning in it, we are participating in the revelation of Torah! So, come and create Torah with us. No previous background is necessary.
