    Tikkun Leyl Shavuot

    Sunday, May 16th 4:00p to 6:00p
    “On Sunday, May 16th, we are doing an afternoon of learning in honor of the holiday of Shavuot. Traditionally, Jewish communities hold what’s called a Tikkun Leyl Shavuot, which involves studying long into the night; in order to recreate the excitement our ancestors felt on the night before receiving the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai. This year, we’re running things a bit differently (because of course we are...). We will be meeting outdoors on the lawn facing the synagogue parking lot, and we will be gathering from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Sign-ups ahead of time are required, but the zoom line will also be open and all are invited to join virtually.”

    Megillat Loštice: A Scroll of Resilience - a sneak peak
    Shabbat, Jun 5th 7:00p to 9:30p
    A symbol of the unbreakable, indestructible spirit of the Jewish people exists inside our Sanctuary Ark at Ohev Shalom. Do you know the story of the Loštice Torah that survived the destruction of the Holocaust? Our Tradition urges us to learn, know, and teach our history, and above all to learn om it. Ohev is once again collaborating with the renowned artist, Siona Benjamin, to craft a four-chapter, hand-written, beautifully illuminated scroll, a Megillah. Come learn the remarkable history of the people of Loštice, and the Torah we’ve inherited from them, and become a part of writing the next chapter of Jewish resilience and perseverance.
