Shavuot at BHC
Our Shavuot Evening Service and Confirmation is on Tuesday, May 30, 7 PM. The service will be led by our Confirmation students and is open to all. Come be inspired by our beautiful traditions.
Rabbi Busch for a special nighttime study to celebrate Shavuot on Tuesday, May 30, 8:30 PM. This year’s topic will be “Inspiring Texts of Social Justice.” On Shavuot, we celebrate Torah, and there are so many powerful Torah texts calling for justice in our world. Let us hear their call and study it together. Some stay up all night on Shavuot evening to be spiritually prepared to celebrate the Giving of the Torah come morning. We only study for an hour or so, so please join us. Come share in our study of texts, ideas, and opinions. As is traditional on Shavuot, cheesecake will be served.
At BHC, our Shavuot morning “Sunrise” service, Wednesday, May 31, 7 AM, is a great way to celebrate the festival through worship outside in the Fink Assembly courtyard, hear the Ten Commandments chanted, and celebrate as a community. Many attend to participate in the tradition of Yizkor, though our Yizkor service is brief. Celebrate Shavuot and stay to enjoy a light breakfast afterwards.
Shavuot Scoop, now in its eighth year, returns on Wednesday, May 31, 6-7 PM right outside BHC’s Chapel entrance. We welcome back local favorite Ms. Twist to serve up some soft-serve, as we enjoy the ritual of eating dairy on this holiday. Additionally, enjoy inflatable fun for kids in our grassy space, meet our ice cream mascots and play BHC’s “Scoop Bingo.” Shavuot Scoop is open to all, so bring your friends!
