Shavuot comes later this week, and it's an excellent reminder how, as Jews, we have a long history of making space to celebrate even amid troubling times. Shavuot is also known as a time for intense study, and this week's Hadassah@home brings you several opportunities to learn and to celebrate all from the comfort of home.
