Join Zoom Services:

It is the custom to study on Erev Shavuot.
Following the service Rabbi will lead us in study and discussion
Topics:

Torah Study
In Jewish tradition, studying is not something we do just to become more knowledgeable, or to know how to behave later on in life.  See more....

Humility
We learn important messages from the Torah. One such message is the example of humility. Moses' authority was challenged by disgruntled members of the Jewish nation.   See more....

Thinking About the Food We Eat
In the Torah, we are told very specifically that we cannot eat whatever we want whenever we want. Discipline, in Judaism, is an important part of eating.  See more..

Rules
Our mitzvot are rules and Jews have all sorts of rules in our lives. Throughout the Torah and Talmud, we learn about rules and consequences.  See more....

Prepare a dairy meal for Shavuot
It is customary to eat a dairy meal at least once during Shavu'ot. There are varying opinions as to why this is done. Some say it is a reminder of the promise regarding the land of Israel , a land flowing with "milk and honey." According to another view, it is because our ancestors had just received the Torah (and the dietary laws therein), and did not have both meat and dairy dishes available.
