Shavuot, the festival that marks the giving of the Torah by God to the Jewish people, begins sundown on Saturday, June 4, or 6 Sivan. Continuing a tradition begun centuries ago by the Jewish mystics, that evening is dedicated to study of Torah. And continuing in Berith Sholom’s more recent tradition, our study will be facilitated by Audrey Seidman, now in memory of her father, Elliot, whose fourth yahrzeit is 4 Sivan.
The Torah’s diverse cast of characters include the daughters of Tzelofchad (Numbers 27:1-11), who come forward to challenge the expectations of the community. We will explore how these women serve as role models as makers of positive, evolutionary change. Let’s then consider what other characters, from both Torah/Tanakh and your own life, inspire and embody the evolution of individuals and communities, including that of the Jewish people.
This event will be held via Zoom. Visit https://www.berithsholomtroy.org/events/tikkun-leil-shavuot for information on how to join.
