Please join us as we come together virtually on Friday, May 29 at 10 a.m. to observe Shavuot and Yizkor, led by Rabbi Paula Jayne Winnig. The morning will include a Torah study of the Ten Commandments. 

In ancient times, Shavuot marked the conclusion of the spring barley harvest and the beginning of the summer wheat harvest. (Find information about our Erev Shavuot service on Thursday, May 28 at 7 p.m.)

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.
