Tikkun Leil Shavuot – May 30
What’s Don Quixote got to do with Jewish thought? What’s the connection between Superman and the inability of Jewish writers to find work in 1930’s America? How does the Decalogue sound? Have you wondered about these and other questions? Never fear! We have answers! Join us for an inspiring and delightful night of learning as we celebrate Shavuot with a tradtional all-night learning session. Beginning with Yizkor at 8:00 pm, we will learn throughout the night with various teachers and end with a sunrise service at the cliffs above the Elbow River. Coffee, good food and short walks will help to keep you awake. Teachers: Rabbi Mark Glickman, Dr Ken Brown, Daniel Furst, Katie Baker and Jenny Laing.
