Shavuot 2020

Shavuot is the time we celebrate the growth of spring and the receiving of the Torah.  It is also, like all of our holidays a time to remember those we have lost.  Because of our difficult and unprecedented situation of only having our services on zoom this year we will be conducting yizkor services on both Friday and Saturday morning.  We hope you can join us for one or both.  
Chag Sameach,
Rabbi Fruithandler

What is Shavuot?

Shavuot celebrates both the first fruits of the harvest as well as the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai.  On a visceral level it represents safety and security as we count each night from Passover to Shavuot hoping for a full harvest.  On a spiritual level it represents the climb out of Slavery in Egypt up to the heights of Mount Sinai and the Torah.  Some of the traditions of Shavuot include eating dairy, studying the Torah, and decorating our homes and sanctuaries with flowers or live vines.  If you’d like to dive deeper into the many layered meanings of Shavuot you can read here or email Rabbi Fruithandler.
