Shavuot Celebration – Outside and In-Person!!

Sunday, May 16, 10am-noon

We’re at our new location – the JCC campus. Find us near the tennis courts!

THE EARTH TEACHES TORAH: Rabbinic legend tells us that when the Ten Commandments were given on Mt. Sinai, the mountain burst into flower and each word spoken carried a unique fragrance from one end of the universe to the other. To prepare for Shavuot, the holiday celebrating that moment at Sinai and the gift of Torah, Temple Emanu-El invites you to join with us in exploring earth-based Jewish teachings for the holiday incorporating all our senses. Through song, story, artistic expression, and connection with our natural surroundings, we will offer an outdoor program for all ages and abilities. As with all of our offerings, visitors and guests are warmly welcome to attend. RAIN OR SHINE!

Sunday, May 16: Yizkor – 6:30pm, Shavuot service – 7pm

Yizkor translates to “remembrance.” Public memorial services to honor and remember those who have died during the last year are held on Yom Kippur, the end of Passover, the end of Sukkot, and during Shavuot. The Yizkor service will be followed by a Shavuot service, which will celebrate our connection to Torah. Both services will be led by Rabbi Drorah Setel and cantorial soloist Charlene Sommers.
