A Family Shavuot Program

Mincha/Shabbat Afternoon Service

Unroll the Scroll with Reflections and Readings by members of the Torah Reading Class, followed by refreshments

Maariv/Festival Evening Service and then Torah Study Under the Stars

Please join Beth El and Chisuk Emuna in a celebration of Torah - beginning with a family event at 6:30pm. Everyone will have the opportunity to see the entire Torah unrolled and explore some special passages. This festive family program will include Torah-themed learning, songs, and refreshments.

Following Mincha, Mandy Cheskis, our Gesher Director of Lifelong Learning, and her students invite you to the culmination of their year of learning to read Torah as they chant selected parts aloud and share reflections. What an awesome way to usher in the holiday of Shavuot - the time of the giving of the Torah! Our Shavuot celebration will continue with refreshments, Maariv, and additional Torah study.

Get to know one of the most important of our early rabbis: R. Akiva. An innovator of unique and stunning insights who began learning at age 40 and was ultimately martyred by the Romans, the stories of Rabbi Akiva’s life can teach us what it means to find strength and resilience through Torah in dark times. We will study the stories of his life in three separate units, one before, one during, and one after Shavuot. Please contact patty@bethelhbg.org or call 717-232-0556 to register.
