Temple Beth Shalom Palm Coast is planning a “Super Shavuot Weekend” beginning Thursday, May 25, through Saturday night, May 27.

The holiday of Shavuot commemorates Moses receiving the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai close to 4,000 years ago. 

Jews have celebrated the holiday for thousands of years by holding evening-long Torah studies and enjoying seasonal fruits and dishes.

On May 25, the evening will start at 7 p.m. with Torah talk and evening-long study and discussion.

Families are encouraged to bring their favorite dairy dishes to share and to wear comfy clothes — even pajamas — for relaxed learning. 

A modified family service will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, followed by a “Kid-dish” with a special Oneg — a Sabbath delight — sponsored by the religious school in the form of an ice cream social. 

Saturday services will begin at 10 a.m. with YizKor Memorial services, as ordained for this holiday, followed by an Oneg and Torah Talk.  Havdalah will be held virtually, accessible via the Temple web page — — at 7 p.m.

For additional information, contact the Temple office Monday, Wednesday or Friday from 9 a.m. to noon or via the website above or [email protected].
