Rabbi-Led Shabbat Service

May 13, 2023 - 10:00am - May 13, 2023 - 1:00pm

10:00 am  Rabbi-Led Shabbat Service

Enjoy Shabbat Services with Rabbi Doug Heifetz. The discussion topic this week will be:

The Shavuot Holiday, The Book of Ruth, and the Oldest Same-Sex Commitment Ceremony

Later this month we celebrate the holiday of Shavuot. At today’s service we’ll explore the Book of Ruth, and discuss why it’s traditionally read on the holiday. Did you know that this ancient biblical book may well contain the oldest description of a same-sex commitment ceremony, and perhaps the oldest vows of romantic commitment? Let’s discuss and discover together.

Please bring a vegetarian nosh. RSVP what you are bringing to info@beittikvah.org.
