I will not be writing a message next week so I want to take this opportunity to alert you about an important and wonderful activity taking place next Saturday night (June 11th). The Annual Tikkun Leil Shavuot will take place at the Squirrel Hill JCC from 10 pm until 1 am. This comes from a tradition to stay up all night long studying Torah on the holiday of Shavuot which celebrates our people’s receiving of the Torah.
Our “Tikkun” brings together all aspects of our vast Jewish community. I strongly urge you to CLICK HERE to review the schedule with the full listing of extraordinary study sessions. I must say that it gets better and better every year. I want to thank the JCC for its partnership and all the Rabbis and teachers from synagogues and institutions for lending their expertise. This is another one of those events that we in Pittsburgh take for granted but is truly unique and special. I don’t know any other community that comes together in this way.
Come! Learn! Experience studying with someone you do not typically interact. See you next Saturday night!
