Shavuot Learning with Rabbi Wright

May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for this special learning session with Rabbi Wright as we explore Shavuot together. Shavuot, the “Feast of Weeks,” is celebrated seven weeks after Passover (Pesach). Since the counting of this period (sefirot ha-omer) begins on the second evening of Passover, Shavuot takes place exactly 50 days after the (first) Seder. Although its origins are to be found in an ancient grain harvest festival, Shavuot has long been identified with the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai.
