Tikkun Leil Shavuot
The Tikkun Leil Shavuot offers an opportunity to pull an all-nighter devoted to Jewish learning. Mark Berch has planned a full program of interesting sessions, including a play by Rabbi Seidel. Every year, part of the Tikkun is held jointly with other synagogues and minyanim in the area. This year, we are excited to partner with Ohev Shalom, Fabrangen, Shirat HaNefesh, and Minyan Segulah.

You don't have to stay all night, but every year people are surprised by how long they choose to stay. If you've never been before, this is a great year to try it out - since Shavuot falls on a weekend, you can sleep off all that learning on Sunday!
