Tikun Leyl Shavuot: An Evening of Blintzes, Cheesecake & Jewish Learning

Posted on Thursday, April 5th, 2012

The kabbalists instituted the Shavuot tradition of tikun leyl shavuot, the practice of staying up all night and learning.  For many of us, pulling an all-nighter is something we haven’t done in a while, so we’ll begin at 6:00 pm and end before midnight, mixing all sorts of Jewish learning with good food and good company. The event will include a dairy pot luck (dairy is traditional for Shavuot), especially blintzes, cheesecake, etc.
