Shavuot
at Chabad of Hawaii
Shavuot: May 30 - June 1, 2017
From Rabbi Itchel & Perl

It's here - our 3,329th wedding anniversary! ....The longest recorded marriage in history! 

That is.... between G‑d and the Jewish people.

3,329 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, the energy of this historic event is present once again and re-lived and re-experienced as the Ten Commandments are read from the Torah.

 At the "wedding", there was the biggest sound & light show ever: fire, thunder, lightning - and literally the whole world stood stock still and absorbed G‑d's voice. 

So... what do you do for an encore? What do you give as an anniversary gift, the 3329th time around? 

 How about (warning -  radical idea ahead:) coming to synagogue (GASP!) to renew our vows and our commitment to G‑d and His eternal covenant, the Torah! Yes, you can do it! 

You can even (sit down a minute) take the kids out of school to come & participate in an event in which they played a crucial, determining role.... (If you want to know more, you gotta come...)  

Details on everything Shavuot below.

Looking forward to seeing you! Or find a synagogue near you...
Wishing you a happy holiday! 

Rabbi Itchel & Perl Krasnjansky

10 Commandments - Aseret Hadibrot

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!
