Chabad Lubavitch of Riverdale is sponsoring a Shavuot ice cream party, which will take place at PS 24, 660 West 236th Street on Sunday, May 31, at 2:30 p.m.

There is an age-old Jewish custom to eat dairy foods on this holiday.

This program is free of charge, and geared to all children up to age 10. There will be prizes and games for all participating kids.
