The Rebbe’s Personal Request For Shavuot:

The Rebbe has emphasized many times that at Mount Sinai all Jewish people were present, including (and especially) children, who acted as our guarantors. Every year, when the story of the giving of the Torah is read on Shavuot, we re-experience that Sinai Revelation. Therefore, it is important that all men, women and children (of ALL ages) participate in the reading of the Ten Commandments.

Followed by A delicious dairy kiddush lunch including fine wine and cheeses, hot blintzes and a Ice Cream Party for kids of all ages. Sponsor needed. Email [email protected] if you want to sponsor.

We will also be hosting A GRAND ICE CREAM PARTY 4-5 PM at Waterline Square Park. The 10 commandments will be read there as well.

Yizkor Memorial service approx 11:30 AM

Recalling the deceased during a synagogue service is not merely a convenient form of emotional release, but an act of solemn piety and an expression of profound respect. The yizkor memorial service was instituted so that the Jew may pay homage to his forbears and recall the good life and traditional goals.

Followed by A delicious Flaishig kiddush lunch. Sponsor needed. Email [email protected] if you want to sponsor.

*Eiruv Tavshillin (Thursday, May 25)

This allows us to make all necessary preparations during the day on Friday, the first day of Shavuot, May 26, for Shabbat (the second day of Shavuot) which follows immediately afterwards. However, unlike a regular Friday afternoon, it is important to make sure that all foods prepared for Shabbat be totally cooked and edible well before Shabbat begins. 

The Eiruv consists of a matzah, and a cooked food, such as meat, fish, or an unpeeled hard-boiled egg. For details of the procedure and the appropriate Brachah that should be made, consult the siddur (Tehillat Hashem page 327) or see here.
