A Fun Celebration for the Holiday – Dinner and Learning
This holiday commemorates the receiving of the Ten Commandments. Because the Promised Land is called, “the land of milk and honey,” it is traditional to eat dairy on Shavuot. It is also connected to the teaching that the whole nation of Israel was present together to receive the Torah. Another tradition is to do some learning at nighttime.
In the spirit of gathering together for fine dairy dining, we will begin a Shabbat/Shavuot dinner at 6:00 pm. Then, there will be a fun, interactive learning activity presented by Rabbi Dan. The temple will provide a dairy entrée, and those participating are welcome to contribute with a side dish or dessert.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 2nd so we can get a proper count for chairs, and all are welcome. We hope you’ll be able to spend this special night with us, as this is the last major holiday of year before Rosh Hashana.
