Shavuot at BHC
Our Shavuot Evening Service and Confirmation is on Saturday, May 19, 7 PM. The service will be led by our Confirmation students and is open to all. Come be inspired by our beautiful traditions.
Following our Shavuot Evening Service, join Rabbi Busch for a special nighttime study to celebrate Shavuot on Saturday, May 19, 8:30 PM. This year’s topic will be “Exploring the Ten Commandments.” 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 about an hour, 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, Sunday, May 20, 8 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.
Join us for another great Shavuot scoop, Sunday, May 20, 6:30-8 PM. Inflatables for the kids and Scoop Bingo are back again. We welcome The Cow for the first time in their British-style ice cream truck to provide us with dairy treats. We will celebrate outside the Hoffberger Chapel for a night of fun. Shavuot Scoop is free and open to all, so bring your friends. INFO: Nicki Barrett, Coordinator of Engagement and Programming, firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-764-1587, ext. 246.
