Shavuot

Shavuot Family Pajama Party
Saturday, June 8, 5:30 pm
 
Young children and their parents are invited to wear comfy jammies and join Mrs. Rachel and Rabbi Harris at the Temple for a special celebration with crafts, stories, and breakfast-for-dinner. Shavuot celebrates Moses receiving Torah at Mt. Sinai, so we will focus on the Shema as important words from the Torah when we make Shema pillowcases. Shavuot meals highlight dairy to remember that Torah is sweet like milk and honey, so we will have our favorite breakfast foods for dinner, including Rabbi inspired pancakes. While the activities are geared towards children 7 and younger, older siblings are always welcome and will have fun, too.
 
Please RSVP HERE to join us for a dairy breakfast that reminds us that Torah is sweet like milk and honey. (There's no charge, we just need to know for how many to prepare)

Shavuot Morning Walk,
Brunch and Learn
Sunday, June 9
Ruth Walk - 9:00 am
Brunch & Learn - 10:00 am
 
Ruth Walk - Ruth is famous for saying to her mother-in-law Naomi, “…wherever you go, I will go; wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God.” Join us for a morning walk from the Temple to a nearby park and back. During our walk we will discuss themes of the book of Ruth, such as commitment, who we choose to journey with through life, and how we invite God to be with us. For those who prefer, there will also be an indoor option for gentle movement and discussion.
 
Brunch & Learn - “What Is This Holiday Anyway?” with Alan Levenson, Ph.D., Director of the Schusterman Center for Judaic and Israel Studies at OU. Shavuot is perhaps the least known of the most important holidays given to us in Torah. Ironically, it is the holiday that celebrates the giving of the Torah. Combining humor and history, Dr. Levenson will give us a new understanding of Shavuot, covering its background from Torah through how we celebrate it today.
