Shavuot
at Chabad of Downtown Coral Gables
Shavuot: May 19 – 21, 2018
Message from the Rabbi

Dear Friend, 

3,330 years ago, the children of Israel stood as one nation at the foot of the Mount Sinai and received the Torah from G‑d. Each year on the holiday of Shavuot, this historic event is re-lived as the Ten Commandments are read from the Torah in the synagogue.

During the Shavuot Holiday we offer many events for you and your family to celebrate with us at Chabad. The detailed schedule of event is below. Be sure not to miss our annual Shavuot Celebration on the first day of the Holiday, Sunday, May 20th at 11:30 am.

Please visit our Mega Holiday Website for everything you need for the holiday. A How-to Guide, Insights, Recipes, stories, and much more!

If you'd like to be a Shavout sponsor, please email info@chabadgables.com or click here to donate online.

 

We look forward to seeing you. 

Wishing you a happy Shavuot,

Rabbi & Chany

IS EVIL REAL? 
Why do bad things happen to good people? The question has been asked ­ and answered - for thousands of years. But even if we understood the purpose of evil, would this make it more palatable and acceptable? Would it aid us in our efforts to defeat evil?

10 Commandments

Sunday, May 20th,11:30 am

Come with the entire family to hear the 10 Commandments read from the Torah just as it was read on Mount Sinai!

Our Sages explain that before G‑d gave the Torah to the Jewish People, He demanded guarantors. The people suggested our forefathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; but these were not sufficient. They cited many other great leaders and people but G‑d did not accept them either! Finally, they declared, "Our children will be our guarantors!"  G‑d immediately accepted and agreed to give them the Torah.

The Jewish Children were — and still are — the guarantors and transmitters of the Torah. Our commitment to their education has always been the best assurance to the continuity of Torah and Mitzvoth . When G‑d gave the Torah on Mt. Sinai, every Jewish child was present. Let us ensure that our children will be there this year too!

 

All children that come to hear the 10 Commandments being read will recive a FREE Ice Cream Squishy as a gift!
