Shavuot Festival Services 
Friday, May 29 and Saturday, May 30 
9:30 am
RSVP for lunch here 
At Congregation Beth El we enjoy Shavuot as a joyous festival of Torah study, creative expression, and happy celebration. On Shavuot we imagine ourselves at Mt. Sinai and rejoice in the gift of Torah. To honor our holiday’s spirit, before we take the Torah scrolls out of the Ark, our Shavuot Festival Morning Service on May 29 will include a special opportunity to sit together around tables and study the Ten Commandments. During our service on May 30, we recite Yizkor Memorial Prayers. A holiday luncheon will follow our service after which we join Rabbi Shulman for a Shavuot discussion about what the Ten Commandments ought to be in 2020.
