One of the most distinctive customs of the Jewish holiday of Shavout is Tikkun Leil Shavuot, an evening-long study session. The custom originated with the mystics of Safed in the 16th century. Come for a night of learning and choose your own adventure! Stay for the entire night or just part of it! Registration encouraged as some classes are limited. RSVP below!
