Shavuot 2019

31st Annual Tikkun Leyl Shavuot

SAT, JUN 8, 6 PM | Candle lighting 9:16 PM
JCC East Bay, Berkeley branch

Join us for an evening of learning, inspiration, and unique perspectives during the kabbalist tradition of Shavuot. Come for an hour or stay the whole night as educators and scholars from the Bay Area Jewish community guide us on a spiritual journey. All are welcome!

We will serve a spread of Kosher food and snacks one time toward the earlier part of the evening. We encourage participants to bring their own Kosher food for themselves if they would like to eat throughout the evening.


The JCC East Bay is happy to offer free childcare (sleeping room) for ages 2+, from 7 PM-12 AM during the Tikkun Leyl Shavuot.
Parents may not leave the JCC East Bay while their child(ren) are in childcare. Parents must provide bedding and child(ren) must be pre-registered by 12 PM on TUE, MAY 28 to ensure that we will have coverage.

To register your child(ren), please email:
