Shavuot: Torah and Cheesecake

Tuesday, June 11, 2024 5 Sivan 5784

6:30 PM - 11:59 PM

Shavuot is the springtime festival that celebrates Torah and Jewish learning in all its forms. A commemoration of the biblical story of the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai, Shavuot is marked by the traditional practice of learning late into the night and eating dairy foods. Typically at TBH we hold a short service followed by a series of learning sessions led by our members, this year we will kick off the evening with an all-ages ice cream party!

For Shavuot we will be screening the film, Defending Your Life.  This is the story of Daniel (Albert Brooks), who finds himself in Judgment City, a way station where the newly deceased must prove they lived a life of sufficient courage to advance in their journey through the universe.  Following the film there will be a Mussar discussion, with Mussar facilitators, Michele & Richard Jackman. We will discuss what keeps us from advancing on our individual journeys'.  You are invited to an intriguing discussion of Courage and our individual  boldness.
