Tikkun Leil Shavu'ot
Rabbi Batsheva Appel leads our Tikkun Leil Shavu'ot Service, "All-Night" Study Session and Cheesecake Bake-Off, Saturday, May 19th, from 8:00 to 11:00 pm.
Our evening begins with short, music-filled Shavu'ot Festival Services in the Rubin Family Sanctuary. Following services, our Tikkun Leil Shavuot begins. According to the Torah, the revelation of the Torah at Sinai was accompanied by shofar blasts, earthquakes and thunder; at the Temple all will share in an explosion of insights as Rabbi Batsheva Appel explores the Hebrew scriptures with a combination of Talmudic, modern rabbinic and mystical commentaries. We'll study all night (well, until about 11 pm), all the while enjoying spectacular dairy desserts.
This year's study session topic is "The 10 Commandments - One at a Time."
There is no charge for Tikkun Leil Shavu'ot, but all are requested to bring a cheesecake or other dairy dessert. Please call the office at (520) 327-4501 to let us know what you're bringing.
