The Rabbi's Monthly Message
May 17, 2023
Our celebration of Shavuot (the Festival of First Fruits) begins on Thursday night, May 25, at 7pm with our “Torah in PJs” event. Wear your most comfortable clothes as we gather to read stories from out holy writings and enjoy a delicious dessert potluck.
Please bring your best dairy/fruit dish to share. (I’m going to make my grandmother’s blintzes.)
On Friday, May 26, at 7pm, our festivities continue with the Shavuot Family Shabbat service. The children of the Hebrew School will be participating for the first time in our Shabbat services. I hope you will join us as we honor their accomplishments this school year.
A special Ice Cream Social Oneg Shabbat is planned for this evening.
On Saturday, May 27, at 10am is the Shavuot Morning Service and Yizkor. Please honor the memory of your loved ones by attending this service. (Reminder: Yizkor candles should be lit on Friday night before lighting the Shabbat candles.)
I hope to see you at our Shavuot celebration!
