But for the tens of thousands of Jews who assembled throughout the world on that evening, the date will live on as a day of celebration and fulfillment for all who recognize the true gift we uniquely possess, our holy Torah, and the efforts that were necessary for us to properly acquire it.
They celebrate and we celebrate. Mazal Tov.
