Shavuot

Here is a plan for this year’s Shavuot night – it is little bit more complicated this year as Shavuot falls after Shabbat.

Shabbat morning
9.15am – Morning service followed by kiddush

After kiddush – 20 minute learning session (Learning Halachic Man of Rabbi Soloveitchik) followed by an early Mincha at 1.20pm (We will be davening Mincha at this time so that we do not need to come back later for Mincha and can start with Maariv at 9.45pm)
Shavuot Night 

You will I am sure have an evening meal on Saturday evening before the Tikun Leyl – this meal will become your 3rd Shabbat meal (fulfilling the custom to have 3 meals on Shabbat). You can then come and have your first Shavuot meal as part of our Shavuot night programme – it will not be a big meal, don’t worry, but it will be MILKY, so it may be better to eat a non meat meal on Saturday evening!
9.45pm – Evening Service

10.15pm – Mini Shavuot Seudah with Bagels, spreads, drinks

10.45pm – Session 1 – Why do we need 2 Torahs? We will look at the relationship between the 2 Torahs, one a written revelation, and one an oral revelation. Why do we need them both and how do they relate to each other.

11.30pm – Cheesecake break

11.45pm – Session 2 – Pluralism, Jewish law and Midrash. When can we admit the concept of pluralism and what are its limits?

12.30pm – End
