כ״ז באייר ה׳תשע״ג (May 7, 2013)
As we count down the days until the holiday that culminates our exodus from Egypt with G-d’s gift of the Torah Shavuot edition of Just Jew It! is live on your iPad’s Newsstand app.
In Just Jew It! exclusive interview with the producer and director of Helga Deen, The Last Night graphic novel iPad application, Dario Picciau poignantly highlights how impossible it is for us to fathom the sheer number of people who perished in the Holocaust.
By the same token, how extraordinary is it for us to contemplate the vast numbers of us who stood at the foot of Mount Sinai 3325 years ago and witnessed G-d giving the Torah to the Jewish people. We were all there, every Jewish soul who will ever live. Can we even begin to imagine what that day was like?
As with all Jewish holidays and events, we don’t just commemorate our history, we relive it. Shavuot is a time to make personal inroads in our understanding and application of the Torah’s teachings – G-d’s blueprint for creation and living a purposeful life. In his featured webcast, Rabbi Yisroel Spalter highlights some of the unique opportunities for self-advancement as we approach the holiday.
Various aspects of Shavuot are included in this edition; they underscore the magnificence of our service to G-d during the time when the Holy Temple stood. How rich life must have been when we acknowledged G-d’s benevolence in providing exactly the right amount of rain and sun for the fruit and grain crops. How majestic it must have been to travel to Jerusalem with our first pickings as a gift offering to G-d.
Since all Jewish holidays include fine dining, Just Jew It! brings you a guide to eating with consciousness – Holy Eating, by Dr. Robert M. Schwartz whose spiritual secret to eternal weight loss is revolutionary. And if you’ve ever experienced writer’s blog, you’ll appreciate the Jewish mindset to Leap The Divide, by Yonatan Gordon.
