SHAVUOT CELEBRATION

SUNDAY, JUNE 9, 2019

FAIRMONT COPLEY PLAZA HOTEL
138 St. James Avenue | Boston

11:00 AM: Reading of the Ten Commandments
11:45 AM: Yizkor Memorial Service

Its the Holiday of Shavuot and that means its Dairy Time! When G-d gave us the 10 Commandments on Mt. Sinai, the Jews feasted with dairy foods, hence we commemorate this Holiday the same way!

The Holiday of Shavuot celebrates the giving of the Torah  to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai 3,331 years ago. Every year on this Holiday we rejuvenate our covenant with G-d through the study of Torah and the reading of the 10 commandments. 
(Shavuot is a two-day Holiday. It begins Saturday evening, June 8,  and concludes Monday night, June 10.) 

All Urbanite Young Professional's are invited to celebrate this Joyous and Delicious Holiday!

No Charge. RSVP appreciated.
