Rosh Chodesh Sivan "K'ish Achad B'Lev Achad". The Pasuk (Shemos Perek 19:1) tells us that in the third month (Sivan) after they just left Egypt, Bnei Yisrael came to the desert of Sinai. The Pasuk says "Bayom Hazeh" - on this day. Rashi Hakodesh explains that it was the first day of the month - Rosh Chodesh. The Chumash continues "V'Yichan Sham Yisrael" and he camped there - Rashi explains that Bnei Yisrael are referred to in the singular because they were as one person with one heart. It is possible to say that this day - Rosh Chodesh Sivan - when they camped at the mountain - was just as important as the day we received the Torah. While reading the Hagaddah, we say in Dayaynu - If Hashem had brought us to Har Sinai and not given us the Torah - that would have been enough. How can we say that? How could bringing us before the mountain and not giving us the Torah have been enough? We can say it because as we camped at Sinai we were as one man with one heart - and that is what Kabalas HaTorah is all about - Achdus. So, if we had reached that madraygah, that level of Kedusha on Rosh Chodesh Sivan, then even if Hashem had not given us the Torah, it would have been enough. That is how important the middah of achdus is. When the Am is as one person - when our achdus is so great - that is when we have reached the highest level of Kabalas HaTorah. Good Shabbos
