In partnership with Zach Berg of Mongers’ Provisions, The Schvitz Health Club and Detroit City Moishe House, The Well gathered young adults together to celebrate Shavuot with a blend of ancient traditions and modern twists.
At Swiss + Schvitz: A Shavuot Experience on June 8, 65 guests participated in a facilitated cheese tasting by professional cheesemonger Zach Berg, engaged in Jewish learning with Rabbi Dan Horwitz and learned about the Schvitz’s historic and modern impact with co-owner Alan Havis.
Guests were then able to enjoy the Schvitz’s sauna, steam room, and cold pool for the remainder of the evening, sharing in the long-held Shavuot tradition of late-night celebration.
