Shavuot means “weeks”. This Festival celebrates the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai to the Jewish people seven weeks after Passover. Every year on Shavuot, we renew our acceptance of God’s gift to the Jews with an evening of study called a “Tikkun L’eil Shavuot”
Please join Rabbi Londy on Thursday night, May 28 at 7:30 pm-8:30 pm on ZOOM for an hour of thought-provoking study.
Topic: The Book of Ruth. . . The Struggle for Lovingkindness in the Face of Death
Reading the Book of Ruth is an important tradition of Shavuot. How does Ruth’s struggle against adversity help us confront the difficult struggle and challenges of our time?
After session, we will join in a virtual cheesecake Shavuot Kiddush. (You must bring your own wine and cheesecake.)
The Annual Meeting of the members of The New Reform Temple, will held on Friday, May 15, 2020, at 6:00 pm online via ZOOM. For information how to access the meeting, please contact the Temple office.

The community is invited to share the experience of this year’s Yom HaShoah service, offered through video for the safety of our community. Although unable to gather in person, the organizing agencies have identified ways to maintain the abiding traditions of Yom HaShoah and to honor the legacy of both those lost during the Holocaust as well as those who survived it.
This years’ service commemorates 75 years since the end of World War II and the liberation of the survivors, 77 years since the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and the 57th anniversary of the dedication of the Memorial to the Six Million. The program, which includes the lighting of 6 candles in memory of the six million Jewish victims, will be available on April 21, 2020 at 1:30 pm at www.mchekc.org as well as through the social media platforms of MCHE, Jewish Community Relations Bureau/AJC, and the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City. At the conclusion of the video, community members are invited to light a candle in your home in memory of the 6 million and in honor of the survivors.
