Shavuot is the holiday on which we celebrate the Jews receiving the Torah from God. And how do we celebrate? One way is to have evening sessions in which we study Torah or discuss other Jewish subjects.  The other is to eat cheese and wheat - especially in the form of cheesecake & blintzes.  (There are various theories as to how that got started, but maybe the ancestors of the people who make Eli's Cheesecake had something to do with it?  Anyway...)


On Friday, May 26, starting at 7:00pm, join us for Shavuot! First, we'll have a Shabbat & Shavuot service, followed by study sessions on Jewish topics, led by Shir Hadash members (in no particular order):


  • David Edler - The God Upgrade: A Modern Approach to Judaism
  • Cate Doane - Creating Eden in the 'Burbs: Gardening and Judaism
  • Kayla Shonberg & Lynn Liebling - Mussar and Shavu'ot


And of course, there will be blintzes! For the oneg, please bring some cheese and wheat - we'd love to see a great variety: cheesecakes, cheese and crackers, and so on! And for those who can't eat cheese or wheat, other oneg items are always welcome.
