Tikkun Leyl Shavuot: An Exploration of Ideas and Text

Please join us for a Tikkun Leyl Shavuot*.

Tuesday, May 30th from 7:30 until the week hours at a home in Danville.  We’ll study a little, shmooze a little and nosh a lot!  You can drop in any time and stay as short or as long as you wish.

Teachers include Rabbi Dan Goldblatt, Jamie Hyams, and Jenifer Santer.   For the address and to let us know you are coming, email me at jamiehyams@comcast.net.

*What is a Tikkun Leyl Shavuot?   Shavuot commemorates the spring harvest and the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai.   A Tikkun (repair) is a study session based on the 16th-century mystics of Safed, Israel, under the leadership of Isaac Luria.  The mystics had the idea that at midnight the heavens open and favorably receive the thoughts, study, and prayers of those who remain awake on the anniversary of the Revelation.
