Shavuot 101

Hosted By: Temple Israel of Boston

Shavuot is one of three major festivals in Judaism, so why does it still feel obscure to so many of us? What is this holiday all about anyway? Do we really stay up all night? And what’s the deal with the cheesecake?

Join Rabbi Andrew Oberstein on Tuesday, May 24 at 7:00 p.m. to learn about the origins and practices of Shavuot as we explore how connecting to this holiday can bring meaning to our contemporary lives.

This is a free online event. All are welcome and questions are always encouraged! Contact Brigid Goggin with questions at bgoggin@tisrael.org.
