Seven weeks after Passover ends, it’s time to celebrate Shavuot. This holiday marks the biblical story of receiving the Ten Commandments and the Torah at Mt. Sinai.  
Although Shavuot was originally a harvest holiday, today people celebrate the day by studying the Torah, staying up all night, crafting paper cut-outs, eating local foods, and of course, indulging in cheesecake, ice cream, and blintzes. The tie-in to the Torah and Ten Commandments also make Shavuot a perfect opportunity to reinforce the many good deeds you perform!  
So pack up the family and drive through the Jewish Federation parking lot on Friday, May 14 between 2:00 and 4:00 pm to enjoy delicious McConnell's ice cream and cheesecake and help us launch our new Mitzvah Maker Volunteer Program!

Added bonus: If you plan on attending Get Baked with Chef Doug (Family Edition): Cookies on Zoom on Thursday, May 20 at 5:00 pm, you can pick up your goodie bag with cookie dough and cookie cutters, too!
