Maamad Sinai translates as ‘Standing [at] Sinai.’ Centuries ago, the sages linked the Feast of Weeks [Shavuot] and First Fruits [Biqurim] to the mythic event of standing together at Mt. Sinai to receive the Torah. This year, let us extend the metaphor, hearing in the phrase Ma’amad Sinai a renewed calling to take a stand, up-standing rather than by-standing.
Join us in honoring Chag HaShavuot with 15-hours of communing through story, study, shared silence and song, celebrating the ‘first fruits of the flourishing our redemption,’ and continuing the pilgrimage in pursuit of justice and peace near and far.
