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
Be very careful to purify one’s thoughts until that time when the Ornaments of the Bride ascend.
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.
