On Tuesday May 30, at 7:30PM, come celebrate Chag Shavuot with a festive meal, commemorating our receiving the Torah at Sinai, at the House of Friends. Shavuot is not only about the cheesecake! (but, it doesn't hurt...)
For the past few years our Shavuot eve dinner and learning has been one of the seasonal highlights. A delicious dairy meal and fine wines frame an evening of insightful presentations by our own Beit Chaverim members and guests. Will this be the year that YOU make a short presentation? As always, Rabbi Wall will provide resources and support to all who wish to present, and for first timers, a gentle hand holding from inspiration to delivery. Curious? Contact Rabbi Wall to discuss a topic.
