Orthodox Union Executive Vice President Rabbi Steven Weil, and his wife, Yael, will serve as Scholars-in-Residence for the holiday of Shavuot at the Young Israel of North Beverly Hills (YINBH). Lectures will be given at private members’ homes and at the Beverly Hills Public Library Auditorium, where morning services for the chag will also be held. The library is located at 444 North Rexford Drive.

This year, Shavuot begins Tuesday evening, June 7, and extends to Thursday, June 9.

Rabbi Alan Kalinsky serves as the spiritual leader at the Young Israel of North Beverly Hills, and is also the Director of the OU West Coast Region.

At a private residence on Tuesday evening, Rabbi Weil will present two shiurim, “The Watershed Moment that Changed Askenazic Jewry,” and “The Longest Running Show on Broadway.” Mrs. Weil will present “How Perfect Must a Woman Be? In Search of the Real Eishes Chayil.”

Wednesday morning, Rabbi Weil will give the morning drasha at the library auditorium on “The Organic Jew.” Following mincha, Mrs. Weil will discuss “Ruth and the Other Mothers of the Mashiach.”

On the second day of Shavuot, Mrs. Weil will give an evening shiur on “All You Need is Love (An Analysis of Birkas Kohanim).” Rabbi Weil will address “The Jewish Vigilante” following mincha.

Declared Rabbi Kalinsky, “The members of YINBH are as thrilled to welcome Rabbi Steven and Yael Weil to celebrate the Yom Tov of Shavuot in our community, as much as the Weils are thrilled to be back in Beverly Hills! The Weils are no strangers to YINBH. During their decade at Beth Jacob, Yael and Rabbi Weil frequently gave shiurim and lectures in members’ homes, nurturing and developing meaningful friendships that continue, even though Yael and Rabbi Weil now live on the East Coast.”
