Temple Beth Am celebrates Shavuot 5779



On the Harvest Festival of Shavuot, we honor the ancient traditions of the Jewish people by reading the Ten Commandments. Join us as we celebrate the gift of Torah all weekend with Shavuot celebrations for all ages.

Shavuot is a time for Blessings!


Saturday evening, June 8th

• Erev Shavuot Service, Dairy Oneg and Tikkun Leil Shavuot
7:30 pm in the Chapel, Lewis Family Religious Life Complex

In the tradition of Tikkun Leil Shavuot (Shavuot Nighttime Study), join our clergy for some Lightning Round Torah!

Rabbis Jeremy Barras, Rachel Greengrass, Judith Kempler and Jaime Aklepi will each offer learning sessions. Plus, show off your cooking skills and bring your best recipe for KugelFest 5779, our dairy oneg! Let Rabbi Aklepi know what you’ll be bringing by emailing her at jaklepi@tbam.org.

Rabbi Aklepi also will lead a session as part of our "Recovery Through a Jewish Lens" initiative. This multi-faceted series of programs combines awareness, education and support to end the stigma in the Jewish community around addiction. We will explore teaching and share personal stories, and discuss how this work connects to the holiday of Shavuot.
