Shavuot

Tikkun Leil Shavuot

Everyone is welcome to join us for our traditional Shavuot Eve Nighttime Study Session for adults and children.

Following Mincha at 7:00 pm and a light dairy dinner, the adult program continues past midnight for those hearty enough to stay that long. Noshes, including cheesecake, are available throughout the evening.

School-age children are encouraged to attend their own fun and educational program, from 7:00 to 8:45 pm.

Past featured teachers included Rabbi Bill Rudolph, Rabbi Greg Harris, Hazzan Matthew Klein, Rabbi Laura Rappaport, Rabbi Mindy Portnoy, Rabbi Avis Miller, Elliot Wilner, and Jonathan Band.

Dinner RSVP forms will be available in the May Scroll.

Shavuot Services

On the first day, along with the main service, there will also be a Nitzanim Service for families with children six years of age and under at 10:30 am. Then they will join the main service for the bikkurim ceremony.

On the second day, our Religious School Confirmation will take place during the Monday morning service, when Yizkor will be recited as well.
