Come join us to celebrate Lag B’Omer!
This Jewish holiday falls between Passover and Shavuot. It is the 33rd day of the counting of the Omer. This is a happy day as we celebrate the Jewish Spirit. Lag B’Omer is celebrated with a bonfire, picnic and games. We will have a campfire and eat a hot dog dinner. Games and a kosher parve version of smores will be served. This event will be held outdoors at our camp site.
$10/person and $36/family.
The word Shavuot means “weeks”. This day celebrates the completion of the 7th week counting period between Passover and Shavuot. Shavuot also means “oaths”. G-d swore eternal devotion to us when he gave us the Torah and we pledged everlasting loyalty to him. It is traditional to eat dairy foods because when we received the Torah at Mount Sinai, We were given Kosher laws, which includes the laws of Kashrut.
There was no time to prepare the Kosher meat so they needed to eat dairy.
Tuesday, June 3 | 1:00pm
Join us to prepare and eat a delicous dairy treat. Listen to a PJ Library book and design your own Torah.
Free to the community.
