Let's Shavuos!

Thursday, 6 June, 2019 - 10:48 pm

Shavuot Ten Commandments and Ice Cream PartyJoin us this weekend for an amazing array of programming to keep your Shavuos engaged!

Most importantly is to focus on what happens on Sunday at 11:30 am SHARP - the main objective of the holiday: the reenactment of the reading of the Ten Commandments, the entire Jewish nations, men, women and children - even newborn infants - like one body, with one heart!   Our sages relate that when G-d came to give the Torah to the people of Israel, He asked for a guarantee that that they will not forsake it. "The heaven and the earth shall be our guarantors," said the Jews, but G-d replied that "they will not last forever." "Our fathers will guarantee it," said the people, but G-d said that "they are busy." It was only when we promised that "our children will guarantee it" that G-d agreed, "These are excellent guarantors."
