May 10 2021 Chai Mitzvah Tikkun Leil Shavuot
Shavuot, which begins at sundown on May 16, 2021 and ends at sunset on May 18, is a major Jewish holiday celebrated forty-nine days after the second day of Passover. It was originally a harvest festival, but now also commemorates the giving of the Torah. Among Shavuot traditions is to gather with friends and family for a “Tikkun Leil Shavuot”, an evening-long study session.
We invite you to celebrate Shavuot as if you’re at Mount Sinai! Teaching your grandchild Torah is considered the same as you yourself receiving the Torah directly at Mount Sinai. Enjoy exploring these fun-filled, meaningful activities and conversations based on the Ten Commandments.
Chai Mitzvah was created as a way to engage adults, teens, and families in a meaningful Jewish journey throughout their lives. Combining texts to spark discussion, ritual, and social action, Chai Mitzvah utilizes small groups to connect people from all backgrounds.
