Bring and Arrange Flowers and Greens

for Shavuot on June 11th!

This year more than ever we hope the flowers blooming in your yard (rhododendrons, calla lilies, roses, foxglove, etc) can be part of our traditional Island Synagogue Shavuot bima decor!

We'll be arranging whatever greens and flowers we can procure (bought or harvested) Tuesday, June 11th at 2 pm in the sanctuary, and invite you to help, just click the flyer below to let us know you can help with arranging the flowers! Or, if you can't make it, just drop off contributions in a bucket that will be near the front door before 2pm on June 11th.


We appreciate any flower donations that you can make so we can commemorate the receiving of the Torah with a lovely tradition that flourishes throughout the Jewish world.
