AARC will celebrate Shavuot this year in combination with our normal Fourth Friday Shabbat Service on May 26th, 6:30-8pm at the JCC of Ann Arbor. The shabbat service will by hybrid in person and on Zoom. If you would like to attend the service online and do not receive our mailers, please email us for the Zoom link.
The service will be followed by in-person potluck dinner and mini Torah study workshops at the JCC. Everyone is welcome!
We invite you to bring something from your yard or home such as flowers, greenery cuttings, asparagus, or spinach that are among our first harvests here.
Please also bring your vegetarian, nut-free dish to share at the potluck. For Shavuot, Dairy (or dairy-like) desserts are always popular, or you might feature ancient “first fruits” that included wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, and dates in your dish.
This service will include Shavuot songs and readings and Torah-related drash with leadership by Carol Lessure, Seth Kopald and Kathryn Kopald.
If you are unable to make our Shavuot gathering or would like additional Shavuot opportunities, Unbound Judaism will have an online Shavuot offering. You can find out more about it here!
