Word of the Month

The Iyar date no one really mentions… The 20th of Iyar is the date that Bnei Yisrael began their first journey after Matan Torah. They had arrived on the first of Sivan in the year of the Exodus, and following Matan Torah they remained at Har Sinai for almost a full year. The people must have felt very secure at Sinai and apprehensive about beginning their journey towards Eretz Yisrael. Sinai was their Beis Medrash and now - on 20 Iyar - it was time to take what they learned and enter the real world.
