Shavuot 2020 – It’s not just cheesecake and Ice cream!

Last weekend the Liverpool Reform Synagogue celebrated Shavuot through online services, and by challenging its younger members to create their own camp, and recreate camping at the foot of Sinai. Along with creating a walking treasure hunt in which families learnt about the commandments and found clues to a secret Shavuot word.

Some of the children camped in tents, and others made and built their own dens. Parents then talked to their children about Moses, Siani and getting the ten commandments. Lemmy & Rohan Ross came up with their own, which reflected the priorities of the lockdown. Sienna Globe particularly liked eating ice-cream is her camp.

Shavuot – It’s not just cheesecake & ice-cream

The holiday of Shavuot which falls Thursday-Saturday this week is about the time when after fleeing Egypt and wandering through the desert the Israelites finally arrived at Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments, and make camp.

We would like the challenge our younger members to create their own camp, and recreate camping at the foot of Sinai.
No tent, no problem grab some blankets, chairs and make your own!

Take a photo and email cheder@lrshul.org by Friday 10a.m. and Rabbi Elf will share at the end of the Shavuot service!

Whilst you are in the den, you may wish to talk to your children about Moses, Siani and getting the ten commandment, maybe asking them what would they choose to be their Ten Commandments.

Or you could just sit in it, and eat cheesecake, ice-cream and all the other lovely treats associated with Shavuot.

*Important News*

Dear all, 

I am delighted to be able to let you know that all the synagogues and Rabbonim across Merseyside are working together to support our most  vulnerable and isolated members at this time. 

We would like to support our community through reducing isolation, and providing community support 

In the  first stage we are looking to see if there are any volunteers in the community who would be able to help out, and then the plan is to support people. This part of the plan will be shared in a few days.
