Chassidic and Kabbalistic Insights into the Jewish Holiday of Shavuot, by Rabbi David Maayan

The Adams Street Shul presents a Shavuos Holiday Program with Rabbi David Maayan: "The Inner Dimension of Shavuos", Sunday, May 28th, at 7:30 pm.

Rabbi Maayan's insights from kabbalistic and chassidic sources will inspire us as we prepare to relive the giving of the Torah.

The class is free, and is open to the public as well as to members.  Come for a stimulating evening, and pass this invitation along to anyone who might be interested.
