Sunday May 16, EREV SHAVUOT ~ 6:30-7:30 PM Kulanu Teens with Ruth Malka:

Let’s Do Shavuot!

Come join us, as we start by having a fun game of Torah Trivia. Seriously, it will be fun! We will then move on to a more interesting and meaningful discussion about “choosing” Judaism. Ruth is not the only Jew-by-choice; we all are, whether we converted or were born Jewish. What does it mean to actively choose Judaism? How do we make choices in our observance? Indoors, Ohav Shalom small social hall!

Fun ice cream treats will be handed out as you leave the building
