Shavuot is a night of connection to and revelation of the blessings we received during Pesach. The purpose of this all-night study in which we restrict from sleeping is to awaken in each of us a state of unity in order to create a brighter world free from chaos and death.
Kabbalists teach that over 3,400 years ago, the entire world experienced the Revelation on Mount Sinai. For that brief moment, the true spiritual reality and the physical reality became one. Every year on the evening of the sixth day of the month of Gemini (Sivan) we can reconnect with the same energy of the Revelation at Mount Sinai through prayer and a special reading of the Torah Scroll. These connections awaken and ignite the energy of immortality.
