Shavuot

Starting at sundown tonight and lasting until sundown on Saturday is the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, which commemorates the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. During that time I'll be off-line to observe the holiday. For those who observe the holiday, I hope you have a chag sameach. For those who don't observe the holiday, have a great weekend.
