*** The Rebbe’s Personal Request For Shavuot: The Rebbe has emphasized many times that at Mount Sinai all Jewish people were present, including (and especially) children, who acted as our guarantors. Every year, when the story of the giving of the Torah is read on Shavuot, we re-experience that Sinai Revelation. Therefore, it is important that all men, women and children (of ALL ages) be in the synagogue for the reading of the 10 Commandments on the 1st day of Shavuot.***
