Shavuot with Agudas Achim

Tuesday, June 11 - Thursday, June 13

In the past, Shavuot marked the wheat harvest in Eretz Israel. As time moved on, the rabbis began to teach that the Torah was revealed to Moses and the Israelites at Mount Sinai during this holiday. Now, we gather as a community to celebrate this tradition with a night of learning, cheesecake, and prayer.
