The Merit of Torah Shavuos Night

0

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{Dailyhalacha@aol.com/Matzav.com Newscenter}
