On Shavuot we celebrate zman matan Torah, the time when our ancestors experienced revelation at Mount Sinai. We traditionally do this by reflecting on the knowledge we have gathered and committing to new learning projects for the year to come. Jumpstart your learning with song, prayer, and study by exploring our options below. All events are BYOM — bring your own milkshake!

We celebrate the season in which we received the Torah by recognizing our community's teachers. Tonight we'll honor Rabbi Steven Philp and wish him well as he prepares to take his rabbinate to Chicago. Then we'll welcome Shavuot with a short evening service.

Bring in Shavuot and mark the receiving of the 10 commandments with a traditional study session on a not-so-traditional topic. Explore the 10 commandments, their modern application, and different additions to our ancient tradition if we were to add an 11th commandment.
