Welcome to our special SHAVUOT issue
The Festival of Receiving the Torah at Sinai is the subject of the first four articles, and the concluding story.

The 5th article is for the 6th and final chapter of Pirkei Avot, which completes the first cycle for this Spring-Summerand is always studied on the Shabbat preceding Shavuot,

While the 6th is for the Weekly Reading of Bamidbar, the first reading in the fourth book of the Torah, and also has a connection to the Festival.

(Those of you in ISRAEL should click to NASO for articles on your Weekly Reading.)
