Mission Impossible

It's sadly impossible to promote Shavuos to non-Torah Observant Jews, because their streams a) don't believe the Torah was given at Har Sinai and b) believe the Torah was written by humans, not Hashem. In addition, if you try to explain to them why it was signficant that the entire Jewish people was there and witnessed it, they will usually say, "We emphasize teachings, not the alleged event," or "It really didn't happen; that's just an interpretation."

Just the video I needed

Like many, I have overlooked Shavuot. I received e-mails from friends reminding me of the upcoming appointed time. One of them referred me to this video. It was just what I needed. Blessing to all and I hope we can indeed spread The WorD to not forget The WorD. Shalom from Charlotte, NC

Liora, I love the way you build up the excitement for Shavuot

Only I hope that where you mention music you mean singing and clapping. Music on an instrument would be forbidden on the yom tov. Have a happy one!

Let''s Promote Going to Listen To The Ten Commandments

Thanks for the opportunity to promote Shavout -but aren''t we just reinventing the wheel?

Aren''t there Jewish groups who have encouraged all Jewish people, Men,Women, and Kids to go to listen to The Torah reading of The Aseret HaDibrot The Ten Commandments?

Wouldn''t this be the best way to again relive the awesome and holiness of this wonderful holy and holiday?
