Citing the Zohar, Rav Berg explains that each year on Shavuot, there is an infusion of the same powerful Light of immortality first revealed on Mount Sinai during the giving of the Torah. Further, the Rav details how the technology of the Shavuot connection—a late-night Torah reading—creates a chupa, or protective covering, so that we may receive the full benefits of that powerful Light.
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.
