Shavuot

Dear PSJC Community,

 

Shavuot is one of the major Festivals of the Jewish year. Because it falls at the start of summer, it often does not get all the press of its counterparts, Passover and Sukkot.  But this year is a wonderful time to bring our attention to SHAVUOT—The Time of the Giving of the Torah.  

It begins Thursday evening, May 28, 2020, and ends Saturday night, May 30th.  

Tradition holds that because our ancestors were not prepared to receive the Torah at Sinai (remember the Golden Calf?), we stay up all night, learning and preparing ourselves for this moment of connection—a moment we re-experience with the Torah reading the first morning, the story of the giving of the Torah and the recitation of the Ten Commandments.
