Shavuot and Yizkor Services May 24

On Sunday May 24th, we will be holding our annual Shavuot and Yizkor Services, Study and Sour Cream and Blintzes morning.

Services will begin at 10:30 am in the sanctuary and will include the morning prayers, a Torah reading and the memorial Yizkor prayers.

Following the service, we will sit in the Oneg room and properly celebrate Shavuot with food and discussion.  The discussion will be led by Rabbi Chizner and will focus in an interesting Jewish text.  The food will include blintzes, cheese and other dairy delicacies.

Why dairy?  The holiday of Shavuot celebrates God giving us the Torah, and according to traditional understandings, Torah is likened to milk. Just as milk has the ability to fully sustain the body of a baby, so too does the Torah provides all the “spiritual nourishment” necessary for our growing human souls.

I look forward to praying, remembering and noshing with you.

Chag Sameach,

Rabbi Chizner
