Celebrating Shavu'ot

Shavu'ot begins on May 28, 2020.

Our Muligenerational Shavu'ot Celebration on May 28th starts at 6pm with candlelighting and an intergenerational service, followed by various study sessions to meet the needs of children, families, teens, and adults.

Shavu'ot is a Jewish agricultural holiday that takes place seven weeks after Passover. Shavua means week in Hebrew; shavu'ot means weeks. There is a Jewish tradition of daily counting – called the Omer – between Passover and Shavu'ot. On Shavu'ot we celebrate receiving the Torah, specifically the Ten Commandments. We study Torah, read the book of Ruth, and eat dairy foods.
