Tikkun Leil Shavuot 2022

Current AJ guidelines require proof of COVID-19 vaccination and booster (if eligible) to enter the building. Please email a photo of your card to Masks are optional.

This year, Tikkun Leil Shavuot will be hosted by AJ. It will begin with minhah at 7:00 PM. It is sponsored by Beth Sholom Congregation, Congregation Adath Jeshurun, Congregation Kol Ami, Keneseth Israel, and Old York Road-Temple Beth Am.

From 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM, we’ll welcome Dr. David Bernat with a much-anticipated interactive class: “God’s Wine Cellar.” Our tradition imagines Mt. Sinai as a great wine cellar with rows of wisdom and commandments that we accept with love and joy. As Shavuot celebrates the giving of Torah at Mt. Sinai, we’ll begin our evening of learning with a wine program. David Bernat, Ph.D., our guest scholar and oenophile (wine expert), will guide us in the art and science of wine appreciation and wine–food pairing. We will sample four world-class Israeli wines, with appropriate snacks, and be spiritually and gastronomically transported to the Holy Land. At the same time, our immersion into Israel’s wine culture will open a window to the history of our homeland, from ancient times to today. Be prepared for an experience that will excite your palates and enrich your souls.

Learning sessions will continue with Rabbi Leah Berkowitz of Congregation Kol Ami, Rav Shai Cherry of Congregation Adath Jeshurun, Rabbi David Glanzberg-Krainin of Congregation Beth Sholom, and Rabbi Robert Leib of Old York Road Temple–Beth Am.

Please register below for the event. The cost for “God’s Wine Cellar” is $18 for members of sponsoring synagogues and $36 for the public. All other learning sessions, beginning roughly at 9:00 PM, are free and open to the public.
