Shavuot 5774 / 2014
Tuesday 3 June 2014, 7pm-10pm
St. Mary's Community Rooms

Shavuot celebrates a point of encounter and commitment. The Jewish people arrive at Sinai, and we accept our commitment to the Torah. Learning and encounter plays a big part in how we celebrate Shavuot at Kehillah, with an evening of study, a Tikkun Leyn Shavuot, late into the night.
This year we will explore the theme of Exile. Joined by our members, including Sheila Melzak, and community musicians, we will look at the challenge of exile and the gift of creativity that lies within the experience of loss. There will be learning, talking, text, music and of course, lots of cheesecake.

Come Shabbes With Me
