Join us for a virtual Shavuot service when we celebrate the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai on Thursday, May 28 at 7 p.m., led by Rabbi Paula Jayne Winnig. A study of the Book of Ruth will follow. 

In ancient times, Shavuot marked the conclusion of the spring barley harvest and the beginning of the summer wheat harvest.

Traditionally, the Book of Ruth is read on Shavuot because just as that story recounts how a young Moabite woman chose to become an Israelite so did the Israelites choose to accept the commandments when they stood before Mt. Sinai. It is customary to eat dairy foods on the holiday to symbolize the sweetness of Torah and the association of Israel as the land of milk and honey.

We’ll also come together virtually on Friday, May 29 at 10 a.m. to observe Shavuot and Yizkor. The morning will include a Torah study of the Ten Commandments with Rabbi Winnig.
