Shavuot is celebrated this year from sundown on June 11th until sundown on June 12th. Shavuot means "weeks," referring to the counting of the Omer for 7 weeks from Passover until Shavuot. It marks the occasion of the Israelities receiving the Torah on Mount Sinai. It is also a harvest festival. In the Reform movement, Confirmation is usually celebrated on Shavuot. Other customs include: eating dairy (and cheesecake!), wearing white, and staying up all night for study - called Tikkun Leil Shavuot. Join us for our Shavuot and Confirmation dinner and service on Saturday, June 11th followed by our late night study session. Our Chag and Yizkor service is at 10:30am on Sunday, June 12th, followed by a potluck dairy lunch.For more information about Shavuot or other Jewish holidays, please check out reformjudaism.org
