ShavuotA Tikkun Leyl Shavuot Conversation: Will the Real Jews Please Stand Up?
Tuesday, June 11, 2024
6:15 p.m. in the Bernstein Chapel

Join us as we celebrate Shavuot through prayer, learning, friendship, and nosh!

  • 6:15 p.m.: Ritual Director Saul A. Rube will lead us in minchah in-person and on Zoom.
  • 6:45 p.m.: Enjoy a light dairy dinner while Rabbi Starr and Rabbi Dahlen lead us in a conversation on what it means to be a Jew and what it means to be part of the Jewish community. Questions we will cover include, “If Judaism is a religion, why does one qualify as a Jew by simply being born of a Jewish parent? In order to be a “good” Jew, are there certain (minimum) actions that a Jew must perform? How might we in the 21st century welcome non-Jews as part of the Jewish community?”
  • 9:15 p.m.: We will then conclude our evening by beginning the Shavuot holiday with Hazzan David Propis leading us in Maariv in-person and on Zoom.
