Shavu‘ot - Rabbanite Misconceptions


Our Sages wrote:  

As for the Rabbanites’ claim that Shavu‘ot is the very day of the array at Mount Sinai, it is a claim devoid of proof, and the Miqra’ rather testifies to the exact opposite thereof (Devarim [Deuteronomy] 16).   We pray God, therefore, that He may open their hearts and eyes, so that the truth may be revealed to them and they may follow it and turn back from the acts of disobedience in which they are now indulging and perform the true requirements of that which He has ordained and prescribed for them, as it is written, “...you shall return unto YHWH, your God, and shall listen to His voice, according to all that I command you this day” (Devarim [Deuteronomy] 30:2).
