Shavuot at Chabad

at Chabad of Old Montreal and Griffintown
Shavuot: May 23rd-25th, 2015
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.
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! 
At Chabad of Old Montreal and Griffintown, we are offering 2 readings of the 10 commandments, one afternoon and one evening reading.
You can find more information about the holiday and our programming below.
Wishing you a happy Shavuot,
Rabbi Nissi Gansbourg
