It is customary on Shavuot, for communities to stay up late into the evening and study! Click here to learn more about this tradition! We wanted to share two amazing programs in partnership with the Union for Reform Judaism that are open to the community! 

  • An Evening of Learning, Music, Prayer and Poetry

Join HUC-JIR and our Reform Movement partners, Union for Reform Judaism, Central Conference of American Rabbis & American Conference of Cantors, for Tikkun Leil Shavuot – an evening of learning, music, prayer, and poetry. Learn more & register now!

  •  Shavuot to Sukkot: Green and Grow the Vote

This fall, Americans will hold an extraordinary election –- addressing profound questions of health and life in the midst of a pandemic plague, democracy in the midst of Hyper-wealthy pharaohs, and survival of a million species (including our own) in the midst of global scorching.

Today on the eve of Shavuot, there will be a Zoom conversation among a range of rabbis, youth activists, cantors and other singers, poets, and organizers about “greening and growing the vote” during the period beginning with Shavuot.

 The Zoom conversation is co-sponsored by The Shalom Center, the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, and Dayenu: A Jewish Call for Climate Action. You can learn more about the May 28 Zoom conversation and register to join it -- including breakout groups for your own conversation -- by clicking here.
