What Rebbes Do on Shavuot Night
At the Shavuot Festival meal, all the Lubavitcher Rebbes said words of Torah from the Baal Shem Tov and a story about him, in honor of his yahrtzeit on the first day of Shavuot.
A Shavuot Meditation
The Baal Shem Tov teaches that during the reading of the Ten Commandments, one should concentrate on the Divine Name. One must be extremely careful not to speak a single idle word from the recitation of the Tikun of Shavuot night until after the Kedusha prayer of Musaf , for then all 24 Ornaments of the Bride ascend.
