Arise and Shine

On the first night of Shavuot ( The Day after Shabbat, basicly June the 8th, 2008~~~The year of new Beginnings), The Covenant followers of YAHweh throughout the world observe the centuries-old custom of conducting an all-night vigil dedicated to Torah learning, and preparation for receiving the Torah anew the next morning.

One explanation for this tradition is that the Jewish people did not rise early on the day G‑d gave the Torah, and it was necessary for G‑d Himself to awaken them.
To compensate for their behavior, Jews have accepted upon themselves the custom of remaining awake all night.

This will be my first time celebrating Shavuot. I don't have any plans yet. I don't have a place to go. Can Shavuot be celebrate at home? Do you have any links that might help me to prepare? Thank You very much for your help. Lori

As The Zohar itself proclaims: "Woe unto those who see in the Law nothing but simple narratives and ordinary words .... Every word of the Law contains an elevated sense and a sublime mystery .... The narratives of the Law are but the raiment within which it is swathed."
