Shavuot – The Holiday of Revelation and First Fruits (June 8-10, 2019)

June 8 @ 8:15 pm - June 9 @ 4:30 am

Join us for an interactive Shavuot Seder celebrating the different themes of Shavuot.  Never heard of a Shavuot seder? There is a reason. A team of Beth Shalom folks are creating this special Shavuot seder to add a new twist, and ways to deepen our experience of Shavuot. The seder is for all ages.

This Shavuot Seder will be followed by Maariv, special presentation by Professor Devin Naar on Sephardic customs for Shavuot, Cheesecake sampling, all night learning, late night Yiddish singing, late night cooking and a dawn service as well as our 9:30 service.

This year’s all night tikkun will feature the Project Zug curriculum from Hadar by Rabbi Aviva Richman’s course Food Tour of the Talmud – exploring aspects of food by studying passages on food found across the six Orders of the Talmud. How can the act of eating become a practice of gratitude? Who should receive food as charity, and how much? What rights do field-workers have?  We are excited for this to be the beginning of a year-long partnership with Project Zug and their rich educational material – look for many more opportunities to learn with Project Zug throughout the year.
