What is the relationship between Shavuot and Matan Torah? Torah SheBichtav presents Shavuot as Chag HaKatzir, thanking Hashem for the harvest and cycle of nature. Sefirah in the Torah has nothing to do with Matan Torah, it links the korban omer to the wheat harvest.
In Hilchot Ta’aniyot the Rambam says that the commandment on fast days is to fast & cry out. What is the source-pasuk in the Torah for this mitzvah? Sometimes the “Darchei Teshuvah” come before Teshuva and sometimes “Darchei Teshuva” come after the Teshuvah process. Where in the process is crying out?
