The holiday of Shavuot celebrates the giving of the Torah by God to the Jewish people. This year, Shavuot begins on Sunday, May 16th. Please join Congregation Agudas Achim on Sunday, May 16th for a Yom Tov Service at 7:00pm which will include this years 10th-grade Confirmation Class Ceremony.
Following the service, all are welcome to share in the mitzvah of some desserts and nosh before we begin learning at 8pm at the Tikkun L’ayl Shavuot. According to Midrash, the Children of Israel overslept on the morning after receiving the Torah. The work Tikkun means “correction”, and as a correction for having overslept, we have adopted the custom of nighttime learning. Our clergy will be leading the learning and we hope you will join us. In-person and virtual options are available to all.
For questions, please contact, (210) 479-2689.
