*We hope to bring back the all-night learning and sunrise service next Shavuot, in the new Kol Emeth building. Due to space constraints, this year we will not have a sunrise service on Sunday morning. Instead we will read the 10 Commandments and have our festive Shavuot morning service, beginning at 9:15am Sunday in Beth Am’s main sanctuary.
We are grateful to Beth Am for so generously sharing their space.
