Shavuot Program for Families (K-5)
Thu, May 25, 4:30pm
Come together on Erev Shavuot for an artistic journey through revelation. We’ll begin with a Shavuot skit performed by our 3rd grade class, and continue with a theatrical reading of the revelation at Mt. Sinai, using our senses to imagine what it was like to receive the Torah. Inspired by these skit and reading, families create their own artistic idea of the experience of being at Mt. Sinai. We’ll end our creative evening by feasting on dairy treats.
