Shavuot 5779 / 2019

 

On Shavuot we celebrate the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people at Mt. Sinai and ‘first fruits’ recognizing our connection to the land of Eretz Yisrael.  As Shavuot bears the dual themes of agriculture and religion, we recognize that Zionism too encompasses many perspectives.

Wishing you a Happy Shavuot!
