Shavuot Festival at Shir Hadash!

June 11 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Come enjoy a wonderful Shavuot Festival here at Shir Hadash!

We can’t wait to have scholar Rabbi Dalia Marx, PhD, joining us on Shavuot this year. Rabbi Dalia Marx, PhD is a published author, preeminent scholar, and college professor. She is the Rabbi Aaron D. Panken Professor of Liturgy and Midrash at HUC-JIR’s Taube Family Campus in Jerusalem.

We’ve planned so many fun things to do at our Shavuot Festival, you’ll find something special and meaningful for everyone of all ages – get ready to enjoy:

  • 5:30pm Shavuot Beer Garden (adult 21+ only), come and sip a refreshing beer outside on our patio – meet friends new and old and celebrate the joy that Grains bring to our lives. Non-alcoholic beverages also available.
  • 5:30pm Shavuot Children’s Festival – we’ll have kid-focused crafts, face painting, with activities for age 2 to 6, for age 7 to 12, and for older youth as well! Crafts, snacks, and fun: the children’s festival activities will stay open all evening through dinner and the Shavuot Service, so little ones can color, play (quietly) and enjoy the crafts throughout the service as well. Kids are encouraged to dress up as a fruit, vegetable, grain, farmer, bee or butterfly in honor of Shavuot!
  • 6pm Shavuot Dinner – Cost is $25 per adult (age 13 and older) and $15 per youth (age 12 and younger). Shavuot is a holiday for enjoying grains and dairy foods, get ready for a yummy vegetarian dinner including tasty dairy items and plenty of grains.
  • 6:30pm Shavuot Service (outside!) – on our patio/grass we’ll enjoy singing, praying, celebrating receiving the Torah, and commemorate Shavuot together in community.
  • 7:30pm Shavuot Dessert – get ready for cheesecake and other dairy-licious desserts galore! (timing approximate based on when the service ends)
  • 8pm Festival of Learning – Rabbi Dalia Marx, PhD, will guide an incredible evening for learning – her topic will be “The Secrets of Ruth” – join us in study, exploration, and fostering your curiosity! (timing approximate based on when the service and dessert wrap up)
