Shavuot, the Jewish summer Harvest festival, celebrates the occasion of welcoming the harvest – the first fruits of season. It is a time of joy and celebration, which through the years has especially been a time to welcome the newest generations into our families.

Please join together with Rabbi Paley, Rabbi Boxman and Cantor Avery for a service of remembrance (Yizkor) of our loved ones, followed by a welcoming our babies and concluding with brunch.
