Tikkun Leyl Shavuot – All Night Learning and Cheese-Cake
8th June @ 7:30 pm - 9th June @ 5:00 am
Celebrate the festival of giving the Torah by studying late into the night and, for the first time in a few years, we’ll be finishing the learning at dawn with Shacharit.
There will be a night of exciting and inspiring learning, with a range of teachers from our community. Our theme this year is “Innovation and Tradition” and our speakers will be coming at this idea from a range of disciplines and approaches, connecting it all to Jewish traditions and texts. Feel free to come to as much or as little of the program as you can!
