-- The Torah was given by G‑d to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai more than 3300 years ago. Every year on the holiday of Shavuot they renew their acceptance of G‑d’s gift, and G‑d re-gives the Torah.

Their pockets are empty, and with no money to spare, how can they afford to make a special treat like the traditional mountain of blintzes? Join this big-hearted family in preparations for the holiday celebrating the day Moses received the Ten Commandments, and discover - as they do in a roundabout way that's sure to spark giggles - the true meaning of cooperation and family.
