Shavuot Yizkor Service

Ruth and NaomiShavuot - the Festival of Weeks - celebrates both the Israeli harvest and the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai. But why should you care about this service?

  • Because celebrating the handing down of the Torah makes Shavuot an ideal time to embark on a new (or renewed) commitment to Jewish practice or learning.
  • Because we read from the Book of Ruth, a richly textured story about multiculturalism, egalitarianism, acceptance, and love.
  • Because blintzes!

Take the morning off and join Rabbi Rosen and Cantor Friedland for a relaxed and spiritually restorative mid-week break.
