Shavuot is the day we received the Torah, Its also the Yartzeit of the Founder of Chassidik movement The Baal Shemtov.

 

 
On the day that the Jewish people were to receive the Torah on Mt. Sinai, they overslept!  To rectify this, on the first night of Shavuot the custom is to stay up all night and study Torah as we prepare to
renew our acceptance of G‑d's gift - the Torah

 

We Hope To see Your There!  

 

WHEN: Tuesday evening, May 30- 8:15 PM - until.......

followed by evening Service ad a Full sit-down meal.

What is Shavuot?


Shavuot, this year  starts Tuesday evening May 30 until May 31 in the evening, marks the anniversary of the day when we received the Torah at Mount Sinai. It is the second of the three major festivals (Passover being the first, and Sukkot the third), occurring exactly fifty days after the second day of Passover. The word "Shavuot" means "weeks"; it marks the completion of the seven-week counting period between Passover and Shavuot. During these seven weeks, the Jewish people cleansed themselves of the scars of Egyptian slavery and became a holy nation, ready to enter into an eternal covenant with G‑d with the giving of the Torah.
