Shavuot with Congregation Dorshei Tzedek

Sat, Jun 11, 2016, 8:00pm to Sun, Jun 12, 2016, 12:00am

Co-sponsored by Temple Hillel Bnai Torah

This year, as we celebrate the mythic moment of receiving Torah on Mount Sinai, we will dedicate our learning to the memory of beloved CDT rebbetzin Gina Fried, zichronah l’vracha. It is traditional to usher in the holiday of Shavuot with all-night Torah study, and this evening we will both honor Gina’s gifts as a teacher and celebrate the rabbinic ordination of our Director of Congregational Learning, Shahar Colt!  So come learn with us.
