Tikkun Leil Shavuot 2021

Sunday, May 16, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Tikkun Leil Shavot

Sunday, May 16 @ 5:00 – 9:00 pm

The festival of Shavuot celebrates the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. One of the most distinctive customs of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot is Tikkun Leil Shavuot, an evening-long study session held on the night of Shavuot. Tikkun means a “set order” of something and refers to the order in which the texts are read. We have an exhilarating line-up for the night with the Beth Israel clergy and special guests.

5:00 p.m.: Young Family Shavuot
Do you like cheese? Do you like Torah? Did you know there’s a Jewish holiday which celebrates both of those things? It’s Shavuot! Join Rabbis Jason Nevarez & Jeremy Gimbel on YouTube for songs, stories, and even a fun family activity (you’ll want to have a sheet of paper ready!).

6:30 p.m.: Prepare a Cheesecake with Rabbi Jeremy Gimbel
Chanukah has latkes, Passover has matzah, Shavuot has cheesecake! Learn how to make a delicious cheesecake for your Shavuot and learn why we even make cheesecake on Shavuot. You will receive a list of needed ingredients when you RSVP.

Main Event:
7:00 p.m.: Torah and Revelation: Perspectives from 3 Generations of Beth Israel Rabbinic Leadership

The notion of revelation is central to our Jewish tradition. The authority of the Bible, rabbinic tradition and Jewish law goes back to revelations God gave to various prophets, going as far back as to the giving of the Torah through Moses at Mount Sinai.
Join us as we honor the annual tradition of study on the festival of Shavuot (Tikkun Leil Shavot) and learn with and from our distinguished Rabbinic panel, sharing new insights and takeaways as we honor this annual time of receiving Torah. Led by Rabbi Emeritus Michael Berk, Rabbi Lenore Bohm, Rabbi Jason Nevarez and Rabbi Jonathan Stein. We will conclude our evening by lighting our Yizkor candle and joining in contemplative song.
