Shavuot

Shavuot is a lesser-known holiday but one which has both historical and agricultural significance. It celebrates both the grain harvest and the story of receiving the Torah. For over 30 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 over 1,000 from 3 continents.

“I so appreciate you and the part you played [in the Tikkun Leyl Shavuot]. It was rich, rewarding, inspirational and altogether amazing.”

“The way you amassed all the information, and displayed it in a way to make it both accessible and reminiscent of the JCC East Bay Tikkun in the past was just wonderful. Choosing, attending, and interactive participation in classes felt very similar to the in-person ones we’ve done in the past.. I am so grateful for all the work you and JCC staff did (even while sheltering) to maintain this exceptional institution in our community.”

"Thank you so much for your wonderful Shavuot programming! In just 3 hours, I was able to take fabulous classes, including how to run a Jewish Death Cafe, singing with a Jewish Priestess and meditating and deepening my Kabbalah knowledge with Torah of Awakening. Each class creatively engaged my intellect and soul simultaneously. Go look at their upcoming programs now for delightful opportunities to enrich your mind and soul!"
