Tikkun Leil Shavuot

May 19, 2018, 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Beth Sholom B’nai Israel

Manchester, CT 06040

Join us for dinner, davening, discussion, and dessert! The holiday of Shavuot marks the anniversary of the “Giving of the Torah.” The relatively recent (16th century) practice of Tikkun Leil Shavuot traditionally entails studying all night in order to build anticipation for receiving the Torah the following day. We will not make it all night, but will study late into the evening.

The evening will begin with a light Seudah Sh’lishit dinner at 6:30 pm, followed by the Ma’ariv service for Shavuot at 7:00 pm. Cantor Bolts, Michelle Konigsburg, and Dr. Stacey Zackin will lead discussion-based learning sessions starting at 8:00 pm. Topics will include:

  • The (Back)story of Ruth with Michelle Konigsburg
  • At Dawn I Seek You: Learning and Singing Piyyutim with Cantor Bolts
  • New Topic! “Thou shalt not covet”: Relevance in Contemporary Life with Dr. Stacey Zackin 

We will conclude with a traditional cheesecake dessert at 10:00 pm.

There is a $15 charge for Please RSVP by May 14th to the BSBI Office.
