shavuot gala kiddush 5777

Click here to sponsor our annual Gala Kiddush, to be held on the second day of Shavuot (Thursday, June 1).  Join us for lasagna, macaroni and cheese, salads, ice cream, and, of course, cheesecake!


Sign up to join a one-of-a-kind Torah learning project between Pesach and Shavuot based on the teachings of Rav Leibtag. Each week for five weeks we will learn one of Rav Leibtag's introductions to a sefer of Chumash so that by Shavuot, a holiday that celebrates Matan (the giving of the) Torah, we will have learned Rav Leibtag's introductions to Breishit,Shmot, Vayikra, Bamidbar and Devarim. Participants can choose to learn the material at home or at an open beit midrash at KMS each shabbat. Participants will receive video recordings from Rav Leibtag recorded for this KMS program, and will be invited to a gathering at Rabbi and Elana Weinberg's house at the conclusion of the program. The text-based source sheets are all in English. To sign up please click here.
