Shavuot

Shavuot is a holiday that coincides with the date that God gave the Torah to the Jewish people at Mount Sinai more than 3,300 years ago. It comes after 49 days of eagerly counting the Omer.

The festival is celebrated by lighting candles, staying up all night to learn Torah, hearing the reading of the Ten Commandments in synagogue, feasting on dairy foods and more.


Shavuot 2022

TIKKUN LEIL SHAVUOT | REPAIRING THE WORLD WITH ANCIENT JEWISH AGRICULTURE 
SATURDAY 4 JUNE 6.30pm


Join us on Saturday 4 June for an exciting Tikkun Leil Shavuot program exploring Jewish approaches to agriculture and environmentalism! 
 
Mitch Burnie, Manager of Adamama Farm in Randwick will be joining us to discuss the unique learnings and skills from ancient Jewish agriculture that remain practical and useful today. He will also explore what Shmita can teach us about the path to more regenerative practices and a more sustainable society.

Netzer alumni of Kibbutz Lotan's Green Apprenticeship program in Southern Israel will share their experiences and what they learnt about hands-on sustainable living.
 
We'll also hear from members of our NSTE community and take part in Torah study to inspire us to be the shomrei adamah (keepers of the earth) our planet needs us to be. 
 
The evening will start at 6.30pm with a service (including Yizkor) led by Rabbi Misha and our NSTE Choir. We'll then enjoy some light food and our Tikkun Leil Shavuot program in the Frank Wolf Community Hall.
 
We'll also once again host our Shavuot cheesecake taste-off! Everyone is invited to bring along a cheesecake (or cheesecake-adjacent treat) to share. 
 
Please click here to register and let us know if you're bringing a cheesecake!

Please note that the service will be livestreamed, however the remainder of the program will not.
