Celebrate the Giving of the Torah
Davening, Discussion, and Dairy Desserts

Shavuot begins on the evening of Sunday, May 16. Shavuot commemorates the giving of the Torah, and is celebrated with all-night study, prayer, and delicious dairy food. We’ve got all three. See below and mark your calendars for our upcoming study, prayer and activity opportunities!

Tikkun Layl Shavuot - Shavuot Study
