Counting The Days Until We’re Together

There are fifty days between Pesakh – the Festival of Freedom – and Shavuot – the Festival of Weeks. The mitzvah is, literally, to count the days. “On the morrow after the Festival you shall count, seven days for seven weeks, and on the day after the counting you shall celebrate.” (Lev. 23.15-16) At Shir Tikvah this year we are counting down the days to our congregational celebration of Shavuot, and then we are going to keep counting! All summer long there will be opportunities to celebrate our Jewish tradition, with moments that, when we pause to cherish them, make our lives holy. Most importantly, these are chances for us to be together as a congregational community, to share our lives, and what’s important in them, with each other. * Erev Shabbat Featuring our Graduating Seniors – Friday evening June 27 at 6.30pm, we’ll come together for a vegetarian potluck

Tu b’Shevat Potluck Seder, Wednesday, January 15, 6:30 pm

Do you know about Tu b’Shevat? Want to learn more about the New Year for trees? Join us for a vegetarian potluck seder as we celebrate our beautiful world. The Tu B’Shevat Seder marks the New Year for trees. Using a ritual created by Jewish mystics in Sefat five hundred years ago, we celebrate the physical world that sustains us in its infinite variety with songs, poetry and ritual. Four glasses of wine symbolize states of existence, seven species of produce recall Israelite harvests, and doing it all on a cold winter evening encourages us to look for hints of spring. All are welcome to gather for this ideal holiday for environmentally aware, tree-hugging Oregonian Jews. Come and discover the ancient Jewish sources that speak to your ecological ethics and conservationist proclivities. Our Tu b’Shvat seder – which includes original music composed at Shir Tikvah just for this holiday –
