Tikkun Leil Shavuot: Panel Discussion about Identity

  • Date: Tuesday, June 11, 2024
  • Time: 8:00pm9:00pm

Panelists: Rabbi Fox, Michael Morgan (The Center),  Sheri Sinaga (Temple Israel Congregant), and others TBA

The moment of receiving the Torah at Mount Sinai was a moment so powerful that its echo reverberated down the generations to the present day. To ritualize this moment the 16th century Kabbalists of Safed created an evening of all-night study (Tikkun Leil Shavuot), which concluded with a service at the break of dawn. Tikkun Leil Shavuot celebrates a moment of truth and wonder which remains eternally alluring. Join us, as we embrace this tradition of study, celebration, and wonder.

This year’s Shavuot learning will focus on a conversation about Jewish identity and how it impacts the other identities we hold dear. The evening will begin with a panel discussion about the intersection of LGBTQ+ and Jewish identities, in partnership with The Center.
