Tikkun Leil Shavuot

June 4 @ 7:00 pm

with Rabbi Josh Franklin, Rabbi Dan Geffen, and Rabbi David Whiman

Tradition holds that on the night of the festival of Shavuot, Jews stay up and learn Torah all night long, a custom called “Tikkun Leil Shavuot.” Shavuot celebrates the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people, but, according to the Midrash, the Children of Israel overslept on the morning they were due to receive the Torah and had to be woken by a shofar blast from God.

Tikkun means “correction,” while “Leil Shavuot” means “night of Shavuot.” As a correction for having overslept, Jews engage in all-night learning. Rather than sleeping late, Jews would not sleep at all. Take part in an abridged night of learning with sessions taught by Rabbi Josh Franklin, Rabbi Dan Geffen, and Rabbi David Whiman.

Proof of vaccination is required of everyone in attendance.
