-- Shavuot as Metamorphosis -- 2 Mondays, June 3rd & 10th, 1:00-2:30 pm, on Zoom

The holiday of Shavuot celebrates two very different occurrences: it’s both a celebration of the harvest and a celebration of when we received the Ten Commandments. In this two-part series with acclaimed Melton teacher Rabbi Johnny Solomon, we will explore the metamorphosis of Shavuot from being a harvest festival to becoming the festival celebrating the receiving of the Torah. We will also reflect on the personal and spiritual metamorphosis of Ruth, whose remarkable Biblical story is read on Shavuot. Join us for an enlightening exploration of one of Judaism’s most joyful holidays.
