The Torah was given by G‑d to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai more than 3300 years ago. Every year on the holiday of Shavuot we renew our acceptance of G‑d’s gift, and G‑d “re-gives” the Torah.The word Shavuot means “weeks.” It marks the completion of the seven-week counting period between Passover and Shavuot.The giving of the Torah was a far-reaching spiritual event—one that touched the essence of the Jewish soul for all times:
