Tikkun Leil Shavuot is the traditional late night study session the evening before the Festival of Shavuot, when we prepare ourselves for the receiving of the Torah on Shavuot morning.

While we won't go all night, we will try to emulate some of what the Israelites experienced. Rabbi David and others will be leading the discussions. Cheesecake, kugel and beverages will be provided.

Please RSVP to by Friday, June 7. If you’d like to eat dinner at Schmaltz before the study session begins, please arrive at 6:00. (dinner is not provided)
