Thanks to all of you who filled out our Shavuot programming survey. Based on your feedback, the Shavuot Retreat team has put together an exciting slate of post-Shavuot programming to allow us to learn and share the spirit of the Retreat as a community, even while we can’t be physically together.

Tikkun Leil Motzei-Shavuot

Saturday, May 30 | 9:30PM–11:59PM

Stay up late learning Torah with Kehilat Hadar! We’ll start the evening with Havdalah and a short “Tisch” followed by a keynote lecture by Rabbi Shai Held and breakout discussion sessions. Learn more about all of the sessions.

Retreat-Style Learning & Activities

Sunday, May 31, 2020 | 10:30AM–3:00PM

We’ve distilled some of the quintessential retreat moments into an online community program. Enjoy yoga in the morning, a lecture by Dr. Andrea Wershoff Schwartz at noon, and a variety of afternoon shiruim and activities for kids and adults! Check out the full schedule.

We hope you’ll join us! Please register by Tuesday May 26. Note that all sessions will take place pending sufficient attendance, as determined by advance registration.
