Shavuot 2021 with Haver:

It’s time to celebrate one of the biggest holidays that you might never have heard of before:

SHAVUOT!

This is the holiday where we rejoice in receiving the Torah on Mt. Sinai. And, like most Jewish holidays, it has a special food category associated with it: dairy. Think blintzes, kugels and cheesecake. After all, you’ll need something hearty to get you through an all-nighter of Torah study, which is how the holiday is customarily observed.

For our part this year, Haver will host a virtual program at 10 am on Sunday, May 16th, lasting about an hour to get you in the mindset to receive the Torah. We’ll use interactive tools, highlight a few lines of Torah from Exodus, offer a meditation, incorporate beautiful music, and more! Think of it as stretching your mental muscles before joining the greater Denver Jewish Community’s virtual program later in the evening. Some of Haver rabbis will lead breakout sessions for that. Unfortunately, you’ll have to supply your own cheesecake.
