Shavuot At Chabad


Message from the Rabbi
Over 3,326 years ago, the children of Israel stood as one nation at the foot of the Mount Sinai and received the Torah from G‑d. Each year on the holiday of Shavuot, this historic event is re-lived as the Ten Commandments are read from the Torah.
At Chabad, we offer many events for your entire family to celebrate with us. Please join us at our annual Ice cream party and Ten commandments reading.
You can find more information about the holiday, program highlights, and a full service schedule below.
Wishing you a happy Shavuot,
Rabbi Mendy Hecht 
Saturday Night, May 19th, 11 pm

We hope to see you there!
Plenty of coffee and refreshments!
Sunday, May 20th, Approximately 11 am
Our Sages explain that before G‑d gave the Torah to the Jewish People, He demanded guarantors. The people suggested our forefathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; but these were not sufficient. They cited many other great leaders and people but G‑d did not accept them either! Finally, they declared, \"Our children will be our guarantors!\" G‑d immediately accepted and agreed to give them the Torah.
The Jewish Children were — and still are — the guarantors and transmitters of the Torah. Our commitment to their education has always been the best assurance to the continuity of Torah and Mitzvoth . When G‑d gave the Torah on Mt. Sinai, every Jewish child was present. Let us ensure that our children will be there this year too!
Come with your entire family to hear the 10 Commandments read from the Torah, as it was read on Mount Sinai and enjoy our dairyfest celebration! 
 Join us at the Chabad Jewish Center Prospect Heights 569 Vanderbilt.
