Celebrate Shavuot with Congregation Beth Sholom
Congregation Beth Sholom invites the public to attend as Rabbi Karen Allen leads a special Shavuot Shabbat service on Saturday, May 23, at 10 a.m.
Shavuot, or the Feast of Weeks, celebrates the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people. Customarily, groups stay up late into the night studying the Torah on the night before Shavuot in spiritual preparation for the holiday. It is considered that each person personally receives the Torah.
The Shavuot Shabbat service will be held at Congregation Beth Sholom, 315 North 13th Street in Leesburg, with the entrance on Center Street. The special Torah Service includes the reading of the Ten Commandments and the Book of Ruth. The Counting of the Omer, the 49 days from Passover to Shavuot, will be concluded. A traditional dairy lunch will follow.
