Shavuot with Chabad of Huntsville

Shavuot, the holiday of the giving of the Torah; back then on Sinai, and each year anew with the reading and hearing of the ten commandments. Shavuot this year will celebrate 3,335 years since the giving of the Torah!

This year's annual Shavuot celebration will feature an ice cream bar and a scrumptious dairy buffet! The brunch will take place outdoors, weather permitting.
