Motzei Shabbat (Saturday night) 6th Sivan, 5782/ June 4, 2022
11pm – 4am
"Moses received the Torah at Sinai and transmitted it to Joshua, Joshua to the Elders,
the Elders to the Prophets…(Avot 1:1)
The Torah, Jewish Tradition, and Jewish culture have been passed down from generation to generation - from parents to children, from teachers to students, from leaders to their followers - in a process in which layers of knowledge, outlook and way of life were absorbed and celebrated.
As part of the conversations and study on Shavuot night, we will study ways in which the Jewish cultural treasures of the Jewish people unfolded over the generations and reflected in Jewish sources, in history, literature and more.
The Shavuot night English program includes:
12:15am – 1:15am
