Tikkun Leyl Shavuot - Night of Study

May 16, 2021 - 7:30pm

Please be present as we join as a community to celebrate the festival of Shavuot on Sunday evening, May 16th at 7:30 pm. The evening begins with a short service at 7:30 pm. At 8:00 pm there well be a choice of three presentations on how modern Jewish thought leaders interpret the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. These presentations offer a mature, "adult way", of viewing the interaction between God and mankind at Mount Sinai and are not to be missed! Our three speakers will be Rabbi Maurice Harris, Marty Jacobs, and Rabbi Alanna Sklover. Descriptions from them are offered below. The second session at 9:00 pm will be a celebration of Shavuot through art (led by Suzanne Caster) or music (led by Rabbi Alanna and Andrea Jacobs). Descriptions from them are also offered below.
