Get ready for a unique community-wide celebration and night of learning; a spiritual journey bringing together people of all varied perspectives and affiliations. Stay for an hour-or stay until dawn! We will be led in study by teachers from our diverse Bay Area Jewish community. Check out our 2015 Tikkun Leyl Shavuot Program

Childcare: We are offering childcare and a sleeping room (for ages 2 and up) until the end of the Tikkun. Parents must provide bedding, stay on-site,and pre-register online.

Family Programming: Please join us at 6:15pm for family programming and activities for children ages 2-12, led by Melissa Rogoway, Joel Gerwein, and others! See the full family program here. 

After 8pm, if your child is not sleeping in childcare, they must either be with you, or in the 'Kids' Room', supervised by JCC Afterschool staff.

Volunteer Opportunities:
 We are still looking for a handful of volunteers for this year's Tikkun Leyl Shavout, mostly for greeting at the beginning of the night, and food prep. Whether you have volunteered in the past or are new to the Tikkun, there are many opportunities at all times throughout the night.
