Chag Sameach open thread (updated)

Just wanted to get a Chag Sameach out there for those in Israel who are about to enter the holiday of Shavuot.

This is not a holiday for the lactose-intolerant.

I will not be posting until Thursday night at least, although I might get a chance to do a little more this afternoon.

If you want to download some interesting Torah articles to learn over Yom Tov, YUTorah.org has a large collection of annual PDF "Shavuot-to-Go" pamphlets each with many articles.

I wish all my Jewish readers a chag kosher v'sameach. If my non-Jewish readers want to get into scholarly pursuits as well, then the article by Yoram Hazony in Azure that I linked to a week back would be a nice place to start.
