The Merit of Torah Shavuos Night

6

learning-There is a minhag (brought in The Zohar) to stay up the night of Shavuos and learn Torah. This is based on the Midrash which says that Klal Yisroel overslept the night before Matan Torah and Hashem had to awaken them to receive the Torah. Therefore we stay up all night to rectify their oversight. Shulchan Aruch with Mishnah Brurah 494:1

-The Ari’zal writes that one who does not sleep the night of Shavuos and toils in Torah is assured to live out the year and no harm will occur to him. Shulchan Aruch with Mishnah Brurah 494:1

  1. the gerrer rebbe shlita asks
    why on pesach night, when there is mitzvas asei d’oraysa to stay up the whole night, is it very rare to find young children doing so, but on shavuos, when it is just a minhag, every little child stays up????
    find me an answer pleeeeease

    The Pesach Seder has a beginning and an end. But Limud Torah never ends.

    fine the Seder has a beginning and end, but if you look in the MECHABER you will find that he says it is a MITZVAH, and it is probably a D’ORAYSA, while staying up on shavous is mentioned int the MISHNA BERURA (not even REMA) as a MINHAG
