חג שמח Chag Sameach! Happy Holiday of Shavuot!!
On Friday, May 25th, our school will be celebrating the holiday of Shavuot (which begins Saturday evening, 5/26).
In accordance with the traditions of the holiday, we are requesting that you please have your child…
Wear white &
Bring a basket with fresh fruit and vegetables to school (please label the basket with your child’s name so it can be returned to you)
We will march with our “bikkurim” (with our baskets representing the traditional “first fruits from the harvest”) from the Gazebo to the Main Sanctuary as reenactment of the annual pilgrimage that took place in Biblical times in Jerusalem on Shavuot.
