Shavuot commemorates the day the Jewish people received the Torah from G-d on Mount Sinai.  It marks the conclusion of the Counting of the Omer, the seven week period beginning the second day of Passover. Counting these days and weeks is in anticipation for receiving of the Torah. It has become custom for many to stay up all night on Shavuot and learn as well as eat cheesecake.

In memory of Shlomo ben Aryeh Zalman Z"L
