The holiday of Shavuot is fast approaching.  Listen to this 5 minute
crash course on Shavuot to get a great overview of the holiday.
We then continue with "A Love Letter From G-d."  On Shavuot, we
accepted the Torah with all of it's commandments.  Think of it like
receiving the fame rules of life.  Without rules, there is no game,
just chaos.  So to in life, without rules and directions, life would
be chaotic lacking meaning and purpose.  In addition to receiving the
game rules for living a fulfilling life, Shavuot is also important as
it marks the anniversary becoming G-d's chosen people.
