IN-PERSON: Torah All Night Long!

May 25 @ 9:00 pm - May 26 @ 7:00 am

IN-PERSON: Torah All Night Long!
Kehilla’s In-Person Tikkun Leyl Shavu’ot

Thursday May 25, 9:00pm – Friday May 26, 7:00am (more or less)

Join Kehilla rabbis and teachers of Torah for this traditional practice of staying up all night learning Torah as Shavu’ot comes in – the day G-d revealed Torah on Mt. Sinai in the wilderness, 50 days after the Exodus.

  • This will be an informal, low key, DIY Torah study situation! Bring a pillow, fuzzy slippers, whatever makes you comfortable.
  • Bring a snack to eat and some to share.
  • You can also bring fresh flowers and leaves to adorn the Torah ark.
  • Come for part of the time, or for the whole time.

We’ll begin with the evening service at 9:00 pm, and continue with hourly teachings, stretch breaks and snacks until the morning service at 6:00 am.
