What Harvest Are You Gathering In?

The harvest festival of Shavuot offers us a moment to stop and meditate upon the harvests that bless our lives. Shavuot marks the day on which, according to tradition, our ancestors received the Torah and became covenanted to each other and to G-d. We will observe the holy day this year with our Eco-Hallel and poetry celebrating our community’s relationship with Torah.Yizkor prayers will be recited.


Why is it a dairy holiday? No one knows for sure, but Rabbi will list some of the possibilities on Saturday night.
