Sinai at Night: Reveal Your Torah
Jun 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Saturday, June 4 7-8 PM

ZOOM – This is a virtual event

Join us for an intimate night of learning, singing, and wondering in celebration of Shavuot, the Jewish Spring harvest holiday that also takes us back to the mystery of Torah at Sinai! Join rabbis and cantors from Sherith Israel, Sha’ar Zahav and Congregation Emanu-El.  

Rabbis Jessica Zimmerman Graf, Mychal Copeland and Jason Rodich will each teach gems of Torah that are personal favorites and that highlight something about what it is to reveal one’s own truth. Cantors Marsha Attie, Arik Luck, and Toby Glaser will lead us in communal singing, it’s own kind of revelation. Come ready to explore your Torah, think critically about the world and what you know, and see old friends and make new ones. 

Due to the recent COVID surge and out of consideration for our congregant's health and safety, this event will now be held virtually. A ZOOM link will be sent to all registered participants in the days prior to the event.

Registration required.
