Tikkun L'eil Shavuot

Saturday, June 8, 2019 5 Sivan 5779

7:30 PM - 11:59 PM

Can you study late into the night?

Please join us to learn from our Rabbi and lay people about this holiday and other topics.  To help us plan, sign up BELOW!  There is no charge and it is open to all!

Do you have a Judaism related topic that interests you and that you want to teach? We will be delighted to learn from you!

  • Shavuot is the holiday of first fruits.
  • Shavuot celebrates the first harvest of spring in Eretz Yisrael.
  • Shavuot is the historical marker of Moses receiving the Torah on Mt. Sinai.
  • We will break around 8:30 for a brief Havdalah Ceremony

There is a custom to stay up the entire night Erev Shavuot, studying Torah. Beth Elohim will be having a modified version of this practice. We will begin at 7:30 and share teachings until midnight. Tradition tells us that the Heavens open up to receive our prayers at this propitious time, Erev Shavuot.

We will include several facilitators from our congregation and school, who will be sharing and teaching about many subjects related to the holiday and the Torah. You are welcome to add to the discussion! Come learn about the traditions of this lesser known holiday, which was one of the three major pilgrimage holidays in the days of the Temple, along with Sukkot and Pesach.

Did you know there is a custom of eating dairy foods on Shavuot?

If you’d rather contribute your favorite delight, rather than something academic, that is encouraged as well!!

Let us know if you'll be joining us, so we can plan plenty of treats.

You do not have to teach OR cook to join in the celebration!

If you have something you'd like to teach, or a tasty snack to bring, contact  Waky.
