Kids Shavuot Ice Cream Sundae Challenge

Sunday, June 2nd @ 10-11am at the Synagogue

Shavuot celebrates the time when Jewish people harvested the last grain of the season and began harvesting their fruit. Today we celebrate Shavuot by eating dairy. We don't know the exact origins of this custom, but it's suggested that we eat dairy to symbolize the "land flowing with milk and honey."
Our Kids Shavuot program will celebrate the holiday with ice cream sundaes - but first they'll have to "earn" them. Participants will complete a series of activity stations relating to Shavuot traditions and symbols. At each station they'll earn a ticket for a component of their sundae (hot fudge, sprinkles, ice cream scoops). At the end, they'll exchange their tickets for their Sundaes!

Reading Jeremiah - A Series on the Prophet Jeremiah

A six-part series begining in January, from 1pm-2:30pm

June 1, 15

Led by member Fran Synder @ The Chatham Synagogue

The prophet Jeremiah is the most theatrical guide for contemporary Jews to walk with the god-in-history. In 587 BCE, Jeremiah witnessed the destruction of Jerusalem and King Solomon’s Temple by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, and the beginning of the Babylonian exile. His incisive descriptions of the political situations and social conditions of his time make the ancient world feel familiar to us.

Not so his theology. Jeremiah understood the Babylonian assault as God’s punishment of Israel’s sins. He rages at God, he originates the idea of suing God, and he affronts all human authority. In the end, though, hope springs eternal. Jeremiah predicts the return to Judea and the restoration of Jerusalem. His letter to the deported community in Babylon with advice for living in exile is a model for how Jews have lived in all of our diasporas. 

This Continuing Education course will meet in the Synagogue library on the first Shabbat of every month, after services and kiddush lunch.
