Shavuot at Betenu
This year the festival of Shavuot
begins at sunset on May 30. Shavuot
is the Jewish festival that marks the giving of the Torah at Mount
Sinai. The reading of the Ten Commandments celebrates this
We also traditionally read the Book of Ruth at Shavuot. Dairy
dishes are the food of choice, perhaps as Jews think of the land of
milk and honey. Blintzes are a traditional dish, as is cheesecake.
Betenu will observe Shavuot on Friday evening June 2, when all are
welcome to join us at 7:30 PM for Betenu's annual Shavuot
Service. This year, the service will include presentations by the three
Betenu students who became B'Nai Mitzvot during this past year. At
Betenu, an important requirement
for becoming Bar/Bat Mitzvah is to organize and perform a Mitzvah
service project. In addition to observing the festival of Shavuot, this
is an opportunity to celebrate the community
service projects that were performed this year by each of our students.
