The Ecumenical/Multi-Faith Unit Group and the Bishop of New Westminster have coordinated a letter of greeting to local Jewish communities on their celebration of Shavuot. This year Shavuot begins at sunset on June 4.

You can learn about Shavuot here and why it is an important celebration in the faith tradition of our Jewish neighbours.

As followers of Christ, we take seriously Jesus' call to walk in peace with one another. If you have a Jewish friend, neighbour, co-worker, or family member, be sure to share with them this letter of greeting and the peace Christ has given you.
