THE IMPORTANCE OF THE DAILY MINYAN ~ WHAT WOMEN CAN DO ~ Ladies, remember an essential part of our Sisterhood Mission is to support our shul and our community. A foundation of our shul and our community is prayer – and our daily minyan is the optimal vehicle for prayer for our community. To help strengthen and support our minyan, please encourage your husbands and sons to commit to regularly attending one, two, three or more minyanim each week. Your encouragement just may make the difference to help inspire the guys to fulfill this vital mitzvah. And, of course, it would be even better if you attend too!

NHBZ women learning laws and customs pertaining to the Torah scroll at the Sisterhood Shavuos Program on May 15.

G-D’S PROMISE OF THE LAND I assign the land you sojourn in to you and your offspring to come, the entire land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I shall be a G-d to them.

– G-d’s promise to Abraham, Genesis 17:8

Shavous 2018

Shavous

The major festival of Shavous begins on Saturday evening May 19 and concludes Monday evening, May 21. You may remember Cecil B. DeMille’s film ‘The Ten Commandments’, starring Charlton Heston. Good film; however, the book was better than the movie! On Sunday morning the Torah reading (Exodus 19:1 – 20:23) contains the narrative of the giving of the Torah and the Aseres HaDibros — “The Ten Statements”, often inaccurately translated as ‘The Ten Commandments.’

On the second day of Shavous, Monday, the Torah reading (Deut. 15:19 – 16:17) contains a brief description of the Shalosh Regalim – Passover, Shavous and Succos. An argument can be made that Shavous is THE most important holiday of the Jewish year. After all, without the Torah, what is Judaism?
