We are celebrating Shavuot the weekend of June 2nd.

Have you ever made it through a big crisis only to find you had no idea what to do next with your life? How many refugees arrive on safer shores only to face that question. Often, the question of ‘what next?’ looms larger after a narrow escape. “What next?” is a question we are all asking, and it was with that question that our ancestors approached Mt. Sinai. Bewildered after fleeing Egypt in the middle of the night and wandering bewildered in a vast desert, they slouched toward Sinai to see what was next. Shavuot remembers not only the giving of the Ten Commandments, but the anticipation and anxiety that came just before, when the midrash teaches us that the world held its breath, waiting for what was about to be revealed. Come join us for Shavuot Services to remember the “radical amazement” of that eternal moment.
