Tikkun L'eil Shavuot

Tuesday, June 11, 2024 5 Sivan 5784

8:00 PM - 11:59 PMIn person at CBE & Zoom

Please join us for this fun & educational community gathering.

Shavuot is the historical marker of Moses receiving the Torah on Mt. Sinai. According to legend, the Israelites overslept the morning of the giving of the Torah.

To "repair" our behavior on the night of the original Shavuot, the kabbalists created a gathering, called Tikkun L’eil Shavuot ("Repairing the Night of Shavuot"), in which we stay up all night learning. At CBE, we have been gathering for many years to learn from each other, and share food, especially cheesecake.

(When you join us, you’ll learn why we eat dairy on Shavuot!) 

For our planning purposes, please sign up below and let us know if you plan to join in person or via Zoom.  Feel free to change your mind about how to attend after you sign up! We just need to know how much cheesecake we need! 

We start at 8 PM with a short service/minyan in the sanctuary and then move over to the swing space for the Tikkun at about 8:15 PM. We will be partially indoors and partially outdoors (depending on the weather) and hybrid via Zoom.  

We will share teachings from Rabbi David and Cantor Sarra, and from our congregants. Teachings could be Torah study, Jewish topics, games, music, movement, creativity and more. (We try to stay up to midnight, but you can don't have to!)

If you have something you would like to teach, please contact adulted@bethelohim.org
