Alone Together at Sinai:

A Community-Wide Tikkun Leil Shavuot

May 28, 2020, 9:00 p.m. until dawn

On Shavuot, we not only celebrate the giving of Torah at Sinai, but we also participate in ongoing revelation through learning, prayer, and community.

This year, participating is easier than ever. From 9:00 p.m. until dawn, simply click-in to the offerings that speak to you. Participating congregations include Adath Jeshurun, Bet Shalom, Beth El, Beth Jacob, Mayim Rabim, Mount Zion, Shir Tikvah, and Temple Israel.
