On Shavuot, also called "Yom HaBikkurim", the Festival of the First Fruits, Jewish farmers used to bundle their first fruits and take them to the temple as an offering. Connect with this practice and give back to the community through the Bikkurim Parade at Kesser Israel.

In the Bikkurim Parade, children will carry their fruit baskets, meet the Rabbi, donate their fruit, and sing a song. Special Shavuot Crowns will be distributed at Kesser Kids' Time that morning.

Fruit will be donated to Neighborhood House. Dairy Kiddush with Ice Cream to follow!

Kesser Kids' Time: 10:30 am | Parade: 12:00 pm
