Shavuot on the Mountain
A Campout and Hike on
Mt. Mansfield for an Earth-based Holiday
Reveling in the Nature of Revelation and the
Revelation of Nature!
Nature is for many of us an opening
to sense the awe and majesty of creation.
As we celebrate the awakening of the plant world, and revelation within, join us at Mt . Mansfield during Memorial Day weekend with story telling, music, learning, hiking and community in celebration of the Jewish spring-pilgrimage festival of Shavuot.
Camp out at Smuggler's Notch State Park. With morning light, we will hike to the Mountain Chapel on Mt. Mansfield for a songful celebration led by Rabbi David Fainsilber, followed by a potluck lunch, surrounded by Vermont's beauty. The Mountain Chapel also accessible from the Toll Road. May 24, we will celebrate at the Mountain Chapel at 11:30 a.m. Come to the whole celebration or just the part that most appeals to you.
For questions and registration email Stacey at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a family-friendly event. There is a fee of $10 per person,
$30 per family, and a fee for using the Toll Road. Financial assistance available.
Brought to you by JCOGS & Living Tree Alliance with support from Jewish Communities of Vermont.
Please bring vegetarian food to share. Registration is required for this event, and for use of the Toll Road.

The Old Country Fiddler
Sunday, May 31, 3 p.m.
Adam Boyce, composer, living history presenter and fiddler, portrays musical humorist and fiddler Charles Ross Taggart (1871-1953), doing his favorite routine of Taggart's "The Old Country Fiddler at the Singing School." Don't miss this afternoon of Americana, old time music, and storytelling!
Rock Shabbat Service
Followed by an enhanced potluck dinner
Friday, June 5, 6 p.m.
Dahg is a group of members of Temple Sinai in South Burlington, Vermont who simply love to get together to make music. A "garage-style" band, we have performed for several Rock Shabbat services as well as other occasions both at temple and in the community. The idea behind the band and the Rock Shabbat is to offer a different type of spiritual experience in order to attract more to our Friday night worship. We combine classic rock with some of our more traditional liturgy played louder and faster than it probably ought to be. We've found that this mix appeals to all ages and creates an energy not often seen in traditional worship.
