Shavout

Tomorrow is Shavout. There are several good descriptions of the holiday out there so I won't repeat all that here. It is a harvest holiday as well as commemorating the giving of the Ten Commandments and Torah at Mt. Sinai.

It is a mitzvah to hear the commandments read in Hebrew during Shavout. It is a tradition to eat sweet dairy foods during Shavout to remind us that Israel is a land flowing with milk and honey. The two are combined at our local Chabad with an ice cream party and special service for the children at Mincha tomorrow. Last year's was so fun we will be back this year.

We will welcome Shabbat in a special Shavout style manner with a dairy picnic dinner at shul and Shabbat under the starts

Chag Samech All
