Location: Berkeley Richmond Jewish Community Center, 1414 Walnut Street
Free: open to the public
Join Black, Asian, Latino, and mixed race Jews and their families and friends to celebrate Shavuot (the festival of the giving of the Torah) and the inclusiveness of Judaism. During the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, we commemorate “zman matan Torataynu,” the time of the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. Tradition asserts that all Jews throughout history stood at Sinai, including future generations and those who join the Jewish people through conversion.
Featuring: Family Art Stations (Asian, Latino and African Jewish Art), Music, Dance, Workshops (with Rabbi Capers Funnye, Rabbi Gershom, Tziporah Sizomu, Miri Hunter Haruach, Ph.D. and Scott Rubin) and a Book Fair with multicultural books by Cody’s Bookstore.
