The holiday of Shavuot marks the time when Moses left his (temporary) home — the camp at the base of Mt. Sinai — and climbed the mountain to receive the Ten Commandments.
See? Hiking a mountain can be very rewarding! This Shavuot (or anytime this summer, for that matter), consider taking your family on a commemorative mountain hike. Pack up a bag of dairy delicacies and head out for some nature time.
