Shavuos at Chabad!Horizontal Line The Two Tablettes


Shavuos is the day G‑d gave the Torah to the Jewish people at Mount Sinai more than 3,300 years ago. Learn more.

The holiday begins Tuesday night May 30. (Women light the holiday candles 8:02 pm), and concludes on Thursday night June 1st (holiday ends 9:11 pm).

Wednesday morning (May 31) services at Chabad will begin at 10:00 am sharp.

Since Shvuos commemorates the day of the giving of the Torah, and since the entire Jewish nation was present at the Giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai, it is customary for all Jews - men, women, and children, even very young children - to be present in the synagogue when we read the Ten Commandments on Wednesday. To accomodate everyone, we will be having a morning reading (during the morning service) at 11:30 am, and a second reading and Ice Cream Party at 4:30 pm. (see above for details). We hope you will be able to join us, along with your children, for at least one of the readings.

Wednesday night - women light the holiday candles after 9:10 pm

Thursday, June 1st, holiday services will begin at 10:00 am sharp. Yizkor is recited after the Torah reading.

It is customary to remain awake studying Torah on Tuesday night all night.

Is is customary to eat a dairy meal on Wednesday after the daytime Kiddush.
