Shavuot is a lesser-known holiday but one that has both historical and agricultural significance. It celebrates both the grain harvest and the story of receiving the Torah on Mount Sinai. For more than 35 years, the JCC East Bay has hosted the Tikkun Leyl Shavuot, bringing together more local partner organizations than any other event! In person, the JCC typically welcomes upwards of 700 people through its doors from dusk to dawn. Virtually, we welcomed more than 1,000 from 3 continents.
Check back around Shavuot to find out how you can celebrate with the JCC East Bay.
