Shavuot, Coffee, and The Jewish Story Reconsidered: Shavuot Virtual Study Session with Rabbi Lawrence Hoffman
June 4, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
RSVP required. Long before we got the idea to spend the night of Shavuot learning, Shavuot was the opportunity to rethink the nature of Jewish history. On this Shavuot eve, we will work our way through the various ways Jews have seen history unfolding, from the Bible, to the Rabbis, and into our own time. Who are we? What are the lessons of Jewish history for today? What coffee has to do with all of this will be part of our study.
