TIKKUN Leil Shavuot

Shavuot, the festival that celebrates the receiving of the Ten Commandments, begins at sundown. It is a tradition of the holiday to have a TIKKUN Leil Shavuot, an all-night study session. While we will not be studying all night, we will have a study session, followed by a brief festival service and ritual.

Another Shavuot tradition is to eat dairy, so the evening will conclude with a dairy dessert oneg.
