The Holiday of Shavuot

3,331 years ago, all of Israel, all of us, stood together at Mount Sinai to receive the Torah from G-d. Each year on the holiday of Shavuot, this historic event is not only celebrated but relived.

Great masters of Kabbalah have explained that the extraordinary Divine Radiance that shined on that day is present each year on the holiday of Shavuot when we hear the Ten Commandments read from the Torah. Meaning, our souls re-experience and relive the original Mount Sinai experience!

Come and be a part of it and then celebrate with a traditional mouth-watering dairy lunch!
