My 1st Goliardic verse
Shul* was once family; wherein all Jews were brothers Rending hearts before God, He, One; there were no others; We've maintained sense of kin, of siblings, fathers, mothers, Still, communities waned, per most Jews' private druthers * shul = synagogue in Yiddish
Festival of Shavuot (Pentecost)
The Jewish festival of Shavuot began at sunset on Sunday and ends at sunset on Monday. In terms of religious restrictions, this festival is similar to Shabbat (the Sabbath). Therefore, I have scheduled some blog posts (including this one) to go up in the meantime – I hope you enjoy them!
