Tikkun Le’il Shavuot – A Night of Learning

In Celebration of the Giving of Torah

Sunday, May 16

Join us on Sunday evening, May 16, for a short Shavuot service followed by a night of learning in honor of a custom of staying up as long as possible studying Jewish texts — just as ancestors stood at Sinai. Our clergy team will be offering the following classes in celebration of the ongoing giving and receiving of Torah.  

 
 6:30 – 7:00 pm 
Shavuot Service
Led by Rabbi Jason Rodich with Cantor Marsha Attie. The service will livestream on our website and on Emanu-El’s Facebook page.

 

Sign on for more than one class! 

 7:00 – 7:45 pm 
The Origins and Hebrew Etymology of Tikkun Le’il Shavuot 
(Cantor Marsha Attie) 

In this session we will explore the origins and the language of Tikkun Le’il Shavuot. We will seek to understand the Jewish spiritual calendar at this time of the year as well as having some fun with the Hebrew of the day.

OR. . .  

Torah for our Lives: Three Jewish Strategies for Confronting Chaos and Uncertainty 
(Rabbi Jason Rodich)

Rabbi Rodich will explore ways that three Jewish paradigms (rabbinic innovation, faith in God, and sacred order) can help us cope with and respond to life’s surprises.

 
 7:45 – 8:30 pm 
The Challenge of Honoring your Mother and Father 
(Rabbi Beth Singer) 

You know it is one of the Top 10 Commandments, but why is it sometimes easy and other times a challenge, and occasionally downright impossible to honor your father and mother?  We will study some commentaries on this commandment and talk about the joys and oys of our relationship with our parents, whether they are still living or not.

 
 
OR. . .  
 
Standing at Sinai: What Torah Teaches Us About Seeking God’s Presence 
(Rabbi Sarah Joselow Parris) 

In celebration of receiving the Torah, we will explore together what it means to meet God “face to face,” and reflect on the ways we can seek divine connection in our hybrid virtual world.

 
 8:30 – 9:15 pm 
The Book of Ruth: How Do You Make Caring Happen In An Uncaring World? 
(Rabbi Ryan Bauer) 

Rabbi Bauer will examine how the Torah enables us to tap into emotion, and how we can tie this into action that benefits the greater good. 

OR. . . 
 
The Music of the Modzitzer Chassidim 
(Cantor Arik Luck) 

Cantor Luck will guide us through some of the countless beautiful melodies of this small Chassidic sect, known widely for their compositions.

 
 9:15 – 10:00 pm  
Radical Women, Radical Text in the Tanach 
(Rabbi Jonathan Singer)

Join Rabbi Jonathan for a deep dive into anti-misogyny, and how it makes its way into the biblical tradition.
