Join us for a conversation with Rabbi Ruti Regan about receiving Torah in a time of trauma. Shavuot (May 16-18, 2021) is a time to celebrate our receiving the Torah. We’re still facing a pandemic that has cost many in our communities their lives and their health, and much of the ritual that would normally support us through a time of crisis has been impossible. In times like these, what does it look like to receive Torah and what will it take to sustain us for the future?
