Tikkun Leyl Shavuot: May 25, 7:30-???

As we anticipate receiving the gift of Torah at Mt. Sinai on Shavuot, we engage in a night of Jewish learning and conversation. We will begin with Minchah at 7:30 pm followed by a pre-Shavuot study session with Rabbi Israel. At 8:45, we will daven the festival Ma’ariv service, make kiddush, and enjoy cheesecake. Shortly afterwards, members of the Tikvat Israel community will lead us in study and discussion, interspersed with plenty of snack breaks and caffeine. We will continue as late into the night as we have teachers and learners (usually around 1:30 – 2:00 am) – or until the rabbi falls asleep!
