Programs for All Ages: Celebrate the Holiday of Shavuot with Torah and Community
Thursday, May 25, 5:00 PM to Friday, May 26, 5:00 AM

Join the local community for prayer, study and schmoozing until sunrise (or at least until your bedtime). The Tikkun Leil Shavuot ("repair of the night of Shavuot") is a Kabbalistic practice that began in the Middle Ages. According to legend, the Israelites overslept the morning they were to receive the Torah at Mt. Sinai, and Moses had to hurriedly wake them up! To avoid making that mistake again, we stay up all night on Erev Shavuot, studying and preparing to celebrate the giving of the Torah the next morning.

A complete schedule (with and without Zoom access information) and a registration form to attend in person are now available.
