THIS is the Torah


Shavuot commemorates receiving and accepting the Torah at Mt. Sinai.

What is our relationship to the event? Do we get an opportunity to receive and accept the Torah as well? How do we do that?

This lesson addresses these issues by analyzing a photograph by Zion Ozeri and studying texts related. At the end, students will express their thoughts on what it means to receive and accept the Torah by choosing one of the suggested creative activities.
