Shavuot at Home!
Celebrate a unique Shavuot in 2020
 
Thursday evening, May 28 - Shabbat, May 30, 2020
 

A highlight of my year is Shavuot, when we recreate the Giving of the Torah, hearing the 10 Commandments together from the Torah and then celebrating in style.

This Shavuot, we will be studying, reading, and celebrating ourselves, as our own living spaces have become our places of worship.

But we are never alone. Please spend some time before Shavuot printing some of the resources we have included below—especially the procedure for DIY 10 Commandments and study materials for you to read on Shavuot night (and day).

There’s lots of other great information and inspiration in this email, just scroll right down and see what speaks to you.

Wishing you a happy Shavuot, and looking forward to greeting you again in person,

Rabbi Shimon & Zeldy Stillerman
