The Coronavirus has introduced most people to a new kind of life. We can’t see family unless we follow certain conditions, we can’t socialize without wearing masks, and it is hard to get into the spirit of the upcoming holiday, Shavuot. Shavuot is a very spiritual holiday; it is when the Jews were given the Torah and became the Jewish nation. Every year, we renew our acceptance of God’s gift.
It is important to focus on the atmosphere of chag, rather than on events that usually take place.
Usually, people go to shul and sing along with the community, some people go to special programs, and some people attend shiurim. This year sadly, most of these things aren’t possible. However, there are things that can be done in order to fill that void.
There are so many things that can be done in order to make this a chag to remember! It's important to keep an open mind and remember that this year Shavuot isn’t going to be the classic experience, but that’s no reason it can’t be fun and memorable.
