The Commentators' Shavuos

Insights on Bikkurim, Dovid Hamelech, Matan Torah and related topics
Categories: Shavuos/Sefirah  
Of the three Yomim Tovim known as the ”Shalosh Regalim“, it seems that the least celebrated is the festival of Shavuos. Pesach is celebrated by eating matzah, drinking the four cups of wine, and holding an elaborate Seder. During Sukkos we sit in a Sukkah and take the lulav and esrog. On Shavuos, though there is neither a “special” food to eat nor a particular commemorative mitzvah to perform, the holiday is commemorated in other ways. During the time of the Beis Hamikdash, we commence bringing the annual Bikkurim offering to the Beis Hamikdash on Shavuos; we commemorate the yahrzeit of Dovid Hamelech; we offer the ‘Shtei Halechem’ bread on the Mizbeach. This fascinating sefer illuminates a range of topics, giving the reader a deeper and broader appreciation for this Yom Tov. Among the many issues illuminated are:
  • The connection between Bikkurim and Shavuos
  • The life and legacy of Dovid Hamelech
  • Man’s unique role in fulfilling the Torah
  • The authoritative stature of Moshe Rabbeinu
  • The Mitzvah of Aliyah L’Regel
  • The division of Tanach
  • Prophecy
  • With its rich diversity of opinions and close study of the various themes of the holiday of Shavuous, Rabbi Sender once again demonstrates what has made the Commentators’ Series so popular and valued.
