Shavuot at Chabad

Shavuot: May 30 - June 1, 2017
Message from the Rabbi

Dear Friend,

Over 3,328 years ago, the children of Israel stood as one nation at the foot of the Mount Sinai and received the Torah from G‑d. Each year on the holiday of Shavuot, this historic event is re-lived as the Ten Commandments are read from the Torah.

At Chabad of Hawaii, we offer many events for your entire family to celebrate with us. Please join us at our annual Ice cream party and Ten commandments reading.

You can find more information about the holiday and our programming below.

Wishing you a happy Shavuot,

Rabbi Itchel and Perl Krasjansky

10 Commandments

Wednesday, May 31st, approximately 11 am

Come with your entire family to hear the 10 Commandments read from the Torah, as it was read on Mount Sinai!

Our Sages explain that before G‑d gave the Torah to the Jewish People, He demanded guarantors. The people suggested our forefathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; but these were not sufficient. They cited many other great leaders and people but G‑d did not accept them either! Finally, they declared, "Our children will be our guarantors!" G‑d immediately accepted and agreed to give them the Torah.

The Jewish Children were -- and still are -- the guarantors and transmitters of the Torah. Our commitment to their education has always been the best assurance to the continuity of Torah and Mitzvoth . When G‑d gave the Torah on Mt. Sinai, every Jewish child was present. Let us ensure that our children will be there this year too!
