Shavuot Bikkurim Parade and Fruit Drive

Thursday, June 1

Approx. 12 Noon, Kesser Kids Time @ 10:30 am


Shavuot has a few names, one of which is "Chag HaBikkurim," the Festival of Fruits. This comes from the practice in temple times in which farmers would bring the first of their fruits as an offering. In this light, the Bikkurim Parade offers an opportunity for children to bring fruit to Shul, join a parade to donate it at the Bimah, and engage with the community in doing a mitzvah.  


Fruit will be donated to Sunshine Pantry. Children and adults can participate in the fruit drive.
