Shavuot: Expanding Reality By: Mrs. Shira Smiles
In this shiur (Torah class) on Shavuot, Mrs. Shira Smiles points out that the Torah was supposed to be given on Friday, the fiftieth day of the omer, but was in fact given on Shabbat, the fifty-first.  Mrs. Shira Smiles discusses some of the questions regarding this reality.  Why did Moshe add an extra day of preparation at har sinai?  If the world was waiting since creation for the acceptance of the Torah on Friday, how could Moshe push it off?  If the Torah was given on the seventh day of Sivan, then why is the sixth day of Sivan referred to as the day we received the Torah?  This Torah class is available online in streaming video and for download in mp3 and ipod video formats.
