Studying Torah All Night
This is my first time experiencing Shavuot in a yeshiva environment. I’m told that everybody stays up all night studying Torah, which sounds fun but at the same time I’m a little wary of doing so. In school I once had a paper due the next day which I stayed up the entire night writing; in the morning my brain felt like fried tofu and I could hardly function. How important is it to stay up all night on Shavuot and why; or perhaps it’s more important to get a good night’s sleep?
