As we celebrate the gift of the Torah, we will discuss the interplay between the Oral Torah and the Written Torah. Our understanding of these two Torah's can have a tremendous impact on how we relate to, connect with, and observe Jewish tradition. Our Shavuot celebration will include song, food, and study.

About Shavuot:

Shavuot, known as the Feast of Weeks, commemorates the day God gave the Torah to the nation of Israel assembled at Mount Sinai. It also marks the all-important wheat harvest in the Land of Israel.

One of the Shalosh Regalim, the three Biblical pilgrimage festivals, Shavuot (meaning “weeks”) marks the conclusion of the Counting of the Omer. The Torah commands the seven-week Counting of the Omer, beginning on the second day of Passover, to be immediately followed by Shavuot. This counting of days and weeks is understood to express anticipation for the giving of the Torah. On Passover, the people of Israel were freed from their enslavement in Egypt; on Shavuot they were given the Torah and became a nation committed to serving God.
