The parsha that we read immediately after the Holiday of Shavuos, the anniversary and the reenactment of the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai, is the longest parsha in the Torah. Likewise, the Midrashic material on this parsha is far more extensive than for any other parsha. Commentators point out that the reason for the substantial amount of knowledge imparted in this parsha, in the Written as well as in the Oral Torah, is precisely because it comes on the heels of Shavuos. To be sure, in some years it is the parsha read before Shavuos; nevertheless its close proximity to Shavuos, before or after, is an indication that these two events are intertwined.
