Jewish Community Celebrates Shavuot
May 18, 2012
Join Mayor Mandel and representatives from the Jewish community to celebrate Shavuot.
Date: Tuesday May 22, 2012
Location: City Room, City Hall
Shavuot commemorates the anniversary of the day God gave the Torah to the entire Israelite nation assembled at Mount Sinai and is directly linked to Passover. On Passover, the Jewish people were freed from their enslavement to the Pharaoh and on Shavuot were given the Torah and became a nation committed to serving God.
This event is part of the City of Edmonton’s Celebrating our Faiths program, in collaboration with the Edmonton Interfaith Centre for Education and Action. The program, which includes a display at City Hall, is designed to promote greater awareness and understanding of the city’s diverse faith communities.
