Coming up to Shavuot, I would like to look at one tiny detail of the rabbinical understanding of Z’man Matan Torahteinu, the actual event of the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. One little detail which, as it were, was lying there in the tradition and only in much more recent times has it had significant impact. So I think this is an interesting dimension of the understanding of the event, and also one that explains something very important that’s happened to Judaism in the past century.
