Shavuot: Preparing to Receive Torah

Join us on Sunday afternoon, May 16, 2021, for late afternoon Torah learning, ending with candle lighting for the Festival of Shavuot and a brief Maariv/Evening service.

Our study time begins at 4:00 PM.  We’ll spend about 20 minutes on each of the Asseret HaDibrot/Ten Commandments, then conclude by 8:00 PM.  

The afternoon/early evening is organized so that you can participate the entire time or drop in when it’s convenient for you. There will be occasional brief comfort breaks.
