The Annual Community-Wide Tikkun Shavuot: Usually this is done at the Jewish Community Center the night of Shavuot, with many teachers offering workshops and classes all through the night. But, this year it will be in the daytime and it will be accessible through Zoom. There will still be a variety of teachers, but instead of teaching in various rooms of the JCC, it will be on various Zoom platforms coordinated by the JCC. Kehilla will be one of those platforms with at least two of the classes. Rabbi David will be doing a teaching on the heretic rabbi of the second century, Elisha ben Abuyah. Rabbi Shifrah Tobacman with Shoshana Halle will lead a class featuring groundbreaking work of our Chevra Kadisha for the performance of the rites of honoring those who have died while remaining physically distanced in the time of pandemic.
While there are more details coming about this event, put it in your calendar now, and do register for the event in advance.
Stay tuned for additional info from The JCC about the entire event, as the schedule is being fine tuned. Also, Kehilla will share more details soon with the community for all events we’re present.
4-5PM – Accompanying the Neshama: Spiritual Lessons from a Time of Physical Distance
As part of the JCC East Bay’s Day of Learning for Shavuot, Kehilla’s Chevra Kadisha will present on how we, in collaboration with others around the country, have adapted, during a time of physical distancing, to observe the mitzvah of honoring those who’ve died. Tahara, shmira, and burial will be discussed. We also want to hear what others in the Bay Area have done. Come share your stories.
Presenters – include Rabbi Shifrah Tobacman and Shoshana Halle.
