Shavuot with Agudas Achim

Thursday, May 25 - Saturday, May 27, 2023

In the past, Shavuot marked the wheat harvest in Eretz Israel. As time moved on, the rabbis began to teach that the Torah was revealed to Moses and the Israelites at Mount Sinai during this holiday. Now, we gather as a community to celebrate this tradition with a night of learning, cheesecake, and prayer. 

Tikkun Leil Shavuot - An Evening of Learning

Thursday, May 25 | 9:30 p.m.

All are welcome for this all-night, in-person discussion in the Flax Family Chapel led by Rabbi Jack Moline, AAC member David Blumenstein, and AAC shlicha Yarden Shiri.
Rabbi Moline will start the night off with "Four (maybe 3) Poems that Challenge the Liturgy," followed by David Blumenstein's exploration of the question, "What is the Essential Teaching of Torah?" Yarden will round out this night of learning with an examination of Megilat Ruth and women in Israel.
Source sheets will be posted in the Shavuot Resources section as soon as they become available.
