Dear Congregation Kehillah and Friends,

The blessing for Shavuot candlelighting:
*Baruch Ata Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha-olam, asher kidshanu b'mitzvotav v'tzivanu l'hadlik ner shel Yom Tov.

Praised are You, Adonai our God, Ruler of the Universe, who makes us holy through the commandments and has commanded us to kindle the light of the holiday.
Chag Sameach!
Rabbi Bonnie Sharfman
*Shavuot traditions include the reading of the Ten Commandments and the Book of Ruth, a young woman who experiences much hardship in order to follow her spiritual journey and her heart. This 'convert' to Judaism was the great-grandmother of King David and, according to tradition, the line from which the Messiah will one day come. Home traditions include eating dairy foods (cheese blintzes, cheesecake, bourekas etc) symbolic of biblical Israel as flowing with milk and honey and also in Hebrew, the word for milk is chalav: Its numerical value in gematria is 40, which is a significant number in the Torah (40 years in the desert, 40 days on Mount Sinai...).....and, actually, the dairy foods in modern Israel are really good!!).
Please join us on Shabbat Morning Service, Saturday, June 10th , 10:00 a.m. for in-person and multi-access Shabbat morning.
Rabbi Sharfman, Rabbinical Student, Erica Erman and Cantorial soloist Eric Goldman will be together on the bima, and June birthdays and anniversaries will be celebrated. After services we will be offering a Kiddush lunch. If you wish to enjoy the Kiddish lunch, you mustRSVP, by Wednesday, June 7th
