Shavuot: Rav Pinchas Koritzer: Humility in Torah Print
Written by Machberes Avodas Hashem   

ShavuotThe Torah cherishes humility. Therefore, in ancient times people studied on the ground (Megillah 21a). And therefore, too, we eat dairy foods on Shavuot, for this is a sign of smallness (dairy is lighter than, and therefore inferior to, meat, and is characterized as the state of smallness). (Midrash Pinchas #26)
