Shavu’ot Across Brooklyn Tikkun
Saturday, June 11, 8:00 PM
Hosted by Congregation Beth Elohim located at 274 Garfield Place at 8th Avenue
Join us as we celebrate Shavu’ot, Z’man Matan Torateinu (the Holiday of the Giving of Torah) and re-enact the revelation of G-d at Mount Sinai. Three thousand years ago, in order to prepare spiritually, our ancestors stayed up all night before the Torah was given. We re-enact that experience today in all-night study sessions.
This year, we will join other Brooklyn synagogues and independent communities at the “Shavu’ot across Brooklyn” Tikkun hosted by Congregation Beth Elohim at 274 Garfield Place (at 8th Avenue). The event begins at 8:00 pm on Saturday, June 11 and continues until Sunday morning. Come for as long as you like!
The program starts at 8:00 pm with a musical niggun session, followed at 8:30 pm with Reform services featuring Neshama Carlebach, and then traditional and Orthodox services at 9:00 pm. We continue with Shavu’ot treats. Learning sessions begin at 10:00 pm and continue until 5:00 am. We will conclude with a sunrise service.
Course offering will include: A Jewish View on Incarceration; The Book of Ruth and Intermarriage in Jewish Tradition; Envy: Jewish Wisdom for Taming the Most Dangerous Emotion; Making Prayer Worthwhile; Gaga Dance Workshop; Jewish and Buddhist Wisdom for Facing Fear; and many more.
Special thanks to the Rabbi Linda Henry Goodman and UJA-Federation of New York for sponsoring the Kiddush.
